Quaternary - Miocene
0 - 23.03 Ma



ID: 3185380
Cenozoic sedimentary rocks

Age: Cenozoic (0 - 23.03 Ma)

Lithology: Sedimentary rocks

Reference: Chorlton, L.B. Generalized geology of the world: bedrock domains and major faults in GIS format: a small-scale world geology map with an extended geological attribute database. doi: 10.4095/223767. Geological Survey of Canada, Open File 5529. [154]

Oligocene
23.03 - 33.9 Ma



ID: 3343592
Monzonite Porphyry Stock of Silver City

Age: Oligocene (23.03 - 33.9 Ma)

Description: Medium-to light pinkish or purplish-gray, medium- to fine-grained porphyritic monzonite, most of which has undergone propylitic alteration. Stock has an outcrop area of about 7.8 km2 in the East Tintic Mountains. Dikes and sills with similar composition are present in the area surrounding the stock. Phenocyrsts of feldspar, biotite, hornblende, and augite up to 10 mm long are set in a dense to fine-grained groundmass of K-feldspar and quartz with minor amounts of plagioclase feldspar and ferromagnesian minerals. The monzonite has an age of 31.5±0.9 m.y. (Laughlin and others, 1969) and is the intrusive equivalent of the Laguna Springs Volcanic Group (Tls). Age is middle Oligocene.
