Ypresian - Campanian
47.8 - 83.6 Ma



ID: 2761466
Early Tertiary to Late Cretaceous granitic rocks

Age: Phanerozoic (47.8 - 83.6 Ma)

Description: Porphyritic to equigranular granite to diorite emplaced during the Laramide orogeny. Larger plutons are characteristically medium-grained, biotite +/- hornblende granodiorite to granite. Smaller, shallow-level intrusions are typically porphyritic. Most of the large copper deposits in Arizona are associated with porphyritic granitic rocks of this unit, and are thus named 'porphyry copper deposits'. (50-82 Ma)

Comments: Laramide metaluminous; associated with porphyry Cu deposits

Lithology: Major:{granite,granodiorite,diorite}
