Eocene
33.9 - 56 Ma



ID: 3301151
Gray Porphyry Group, Johnson Gulch Porphyry

Age: Eocene (33.9 - 56 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Johnson Gulch Porphyry

Description: Medium-gray, porphyritic monzogranite or granodiorite typically with a fine-grained or very fine-grained groundmass. Contains about 30 percent small, euhedral plagioclase phenocrysts, 5 percent subhedral quartz phenocrysts as long as about 5 mm, 5 percent biotite as long as 1 mm, and a few percent hornblende needles as long as 5 mm; contains only a few orthoclase phenocrysts as long as 2.5 cm (Behre, 1953). Accessory minerals are apatite, zircon, and rutile. Considered the darkest-gray and youngest of the gray porphyries (Behre, 1953). Forms dikes, sills, and small stocks and is probably the igneous rock most closely associated with ore deposition (Behre, 1953). The Johnson Gulch Porphyry underlies most of Breece Hill, several kilometers east of Leadville, which contains many of the major ore deposits of the Leadville mining district. The Johnson Gulch Porphyry has a zircon fission-track age of 43.1±4.3 Ma (Thompson and Arehart, 1990) and a recent U-Pb zircon age of 39.5±0.6 Ma (Kellogg and others, 2017)

Minturn Fm in west-central and south-central and other units

Age: Pennsylvanian (298.9 - 323.2 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Minturn Formation

Description: Arkosic sandstone, conglomerate, shale, and limestone. Includes Madera Fm and Sharpsdale Fm of Chronic (1958) in Sangre de Cristo Range and Gothic Fm of Langenheim (1952) in Elk Mountains. Other units of Middle Pennsylvanian age.
