A feldspar-silica occurrence/quarry located in the NE¼NW¼NE¼ sec. 31, T4S, R2W, SBM, 2.4 km (1.5 miles/8,200 feet) SE of Nuevo, in the Lakeview Mountains. MRDS database stated accuracy for this location is 10 meters.

Mineralization is a granodiorite pegmatite worked for clear massive quartz during WW2. Still occasionally worked for lapidary material, mainly asteriated rose quartz and asteriated smoky quartz. Local rocks include Mesozoic granitic rocks , unit 2 (Peninsular Ranges).

Workings include unspecified surface openings (the topo map reflects 1 open cast mine symbol labeled "mine" at this point).

Cretaceous
66 - 145 Ma



ID: 2245080
Lakeview Mountains pluton: Tonalite

Age: Cretaceous (66 - 145 Ma)

Description: Gray, medium- to coarse-grained, massive to foliated, biotite hornblende tonalite lacking potassium feldspar. Most abundant rock type in Lakeview pluton. Tonalite characterized by presence of ubiquitous schlieren, and in much of body, tonalite is essentially all schlieren. Schlieren renders tonalite extremely heterogeneous at outcrop scale producing rocks that range in composition from leucocratic to melanocratic. Schlieren range in shape from relatively tabular to wispy layers and in size from a few centimeters in width to sizes mappable at 1:24,000 (Morton, 1969; 1972; Morton and others, 1969). Mineralogic composition of tonalite without variability introduced by schlieren is, quartz 13 to 32 percent, plagioclase (andesine) 34 to 70 percent, biotite 7 to 22 percent and hornblende 4 to 29 percent. Mafic minerals average about 25 percent of tonalite. Accessory minerals are apatite, zircon, magnetite-ilmenite, and sphene. Colorless small masses of cumingtonite form central parts of some hornblende crystals. Ellipsoidal melanocratic inclusions are common and widespread. Dark gray tonalite along southern contact of pluton, forms thin septa of foliated, porphyritic looking rock which results from stumpy, black hornblende prisms set in a fine-grained granoblastic matrix of biotite, quartz, and plagioclase. Texture is interpreted as protoclastic. Long dimension of septa parallel pluton contacts
