A former limestone/marble quarry located in the SW¼NW¼SW¼ sec. 5, T2S, R5W, SBM, 4.7 km (2.9 miles) NW of Jurupa and 4 miles W of Riverside. MRDS database stated accuracy for this location is 10 meters.

Local rocks include Mesozoic granitic rocks, unit 2 (Peninsular Ranges).

First worked during World War I for marble for cement manufacture by Riverside Cement Company (the same company that owned the more famous nearby Crestmore deposit). Closed in 1927; reopened by Riverside Cement Company in 1948; closed again in 1955. Snow Rock Corporation leased the northeastern section of the quarry from the early 1960s until 1971 to mine dolomitic marble (too high in Mg for cement) for granulated roofing material. The last period of commercial activity was 1974-1979, when Riverside Cement Company removed the last of the cement-grade marble. Since 1979, the remaining pegmatites, impure marbles and other contact metamorphic rocks have been of interest only to field collectors.

In the late 1990's, the abandoned quarry was purchased by a golf club and remodeled into a spectacular course, with white marble and pegmatite cliffs as backdrop, now the "Landmark Golf Club at Oak Quarry" (renamed Oak Quarry by the golf club; not known as Oak Quarry during its active, extractive years), so field collecting is no longer allowed. But the management are proud of the mineralogical heritage of their site, and the course holes bear fanciful mineral names: Biotite Bluff, Calcite Canyon, Garnet Meadow, Graphite Tower, Gypsum Gully, Limestone Dome, Magnesite Terrace, Marble Ridge, Microlite Ledge, Muscovite Marsh, Opal Outcrop, Pyrite Perch, Quartz Corner, Spinel Slide, Tourmaline Tower, Tremolite Pass, Zircon Tumble. The club house has a glass case displaying Jensen Quarry specimens, donated mainly by local collectors Anne Seminaris Davila and Nick Rose.

Holocene - Pliocene
0 - 5.333 Ma



ID: 2885167
Quaternary alluvium and marine deposits

Age: Cenozoic (0 - 5.333 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Temescal Formation; Modesto Formation; Victor Formation; Alameda Formation; Aromas Red Sands; Bautista Beds; Brawley Formation; Borrego Formation; Burnt Canyon Breccia; Cabezon Fanglomerate; Campus Formation; Casitas Formation; Chemehuevi Formation; Corcoran Clay; Cushenbury Springs Formation; Dos Picachos Gravels; Dripping Springs Formation; Frazier Mountain Formation; Friant Formation; Harold Formation; Heights Fanglomerate; Hookton Formation; Huichica Formation; La Habra Formation; Manix Lake Beds; Mohawk Lake Beds; Montezuma Formation; Nadeau Gravel; Ocotillo Conglomerate; Orcutt Formation; Pacoima Formation; Pauba Formation; Peckham Formation; Pinto Formation; Resting Springs Formation; Riverbank Formation; Rohnerville Formation; San Dimas Formation; Shoemaker Gravel; Temecula Arkose; Battery Formation; Bay Point Formation; Colma Formation; Lindavista Formation; Lomita Marl; Merritt Sand; Millerton Formation; Palos Verdes Sand; San Pedro Formation; Sweitzer Formation; Timms Point Silt

Description: Alluvium, lake, playa, and terrace deposits; unconsolidated and semi-consolidated. Mostly nonmarine, but includes marine deposits near the coast.

Lithology: Major:{coarse alluvium}, Minor:{fine alluvium}

Holocene
0 - 0.0117 Ma



ID: 2252875
Artificial fill

Age: Anthropocene (0 - 0.0117 Ma)

Description: Sand, gravel, and bedrock from pits, quarries, and excavations related to construction, mining, or quarrying activities; mapped primarily where materials are placed for construction of highways, canals, railway grades, dams, and water catchment basins. Only large features are mapped; not shown in some places where unit obscures detailed surficial or bedrock relations. Differs from disturbed ground (Qdg) in that generally large amounts of rock and (or) sediment have been imported to site
