A portion of a geologic clay formation found in North Florida called the Torreya Formation is exposed near Dogtown, and two mines were located there. The Douglas Owens Mine, as well as the La Camelia Mine, owned by Engelhard Minerals and Chemicals Corporation, mined resources from an outcrop of the Torreya Formation known as the "Dogtown Member". Fossils of Carcharodon hastalis, a shark which existed from the early Miocene through early-late Pliocene (about 20 to 3 million years ago), have been found at the La Camelia Mine.
