Mechum River Formation, VA
The Mechum River Formation in Virginia is a metasedimentary unit consisting of alluvium, glacial till, and rounded boulder conglomerate, all of which are very difficult in a marine setting. The rock is neoproterozoic, ~700 Ma. Google for more details, but here's a quick site:
