Regional Geology

This geological map and associated information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This does not necessarily represent the complete geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.

Miocene
5.333 - 23.03 Ma



ID: 2961447
Younger rhyolitic flows and shallow intrusive rocks

Age: Miocene (5.333 - 23.03 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Cañon Rhyolite; Jarbidge Rhyolite

Description: Rhyolitic flows, domes, plugs, breccias, quartz latite, rhyodacite, quartz porphyry dikes, and other shallow intrusive rocks. This unit includes rocks mapped as the Cañon Rhyolite on the Washoe North map, the Jarbidge Rhyolite and phenorhyolitic and phenodacitic flows and domes on the Elko County map, and other unnamed units. It has a distribution similar to Tt3, with exposures in the northern and southern parts of the State, but only crops out in a few places in the central region. It corresponds to unit Tr3 on the 1978 State map, and also includes a few rocks mapped as Trt on the 1978 State map. This unit is exposed in every county except White Pine.

Triassic
201.3 - 251.902 Ma



ID: 3184762
Mesozoic sedimentary rocks

Age: Triassic (201.3 - 251.902 Ma)
