Sistema Purificación, a 82 km long and 955 m deep cave system in the northern Sierra Madre Oriental of México, is developed on the western flank of the Huizachal-Peregrina anticlinorium in the middle Cretaceous Tamabra and underlying Tamaulipas Formations. Impervious beds above and below the cave cause groundwater to flow to the surface, resulting in many small springs. Larger springs emerge from karst conduits in the lower Tamaulipas Formation, particularly during and after intense rains.
