Santee Limestone, the bedrock formation underlying this area, is locally used as a source of lime. Embedded in it are many kinds of fossil marine animals. A few miles to the south it is overlain by an impure limestone called Cooper Marl. This marl together with the limestone are basic materials used in Portland cement manufactured nearby.
