Alkaline intrusion. Part of the Cornudas Mountains/Diablo Plateau complex.

Wind Mountain was formed by a laccolith of porphyritic nepheline syenite that rises about 2,500 ft (762 m) above the surrounding Diablo Plateau (Holser, 1959). Dikes and sills of nepheline syenite, syenite and phonolite cut the main mass of the laccolith (McLemore 1993). Some dike-like bodies have also intruded into the country rock (Permian limestone) near the base of the mountain (Boggs 1986). The margins of some of the dikes have been altered to hornfels. Larger bodies of hornfels were also formed from the emplacement of the laccolith. At least some of the dikes and sills contain thorium, uranium, and rare earth elements (REE) mineralization (McLemore, 1983). The alkaline dikes and sills reportedly also contain anomalous concentrations of beryllium (Be), niobium (Nb), lithium (Li), nickel (Ni), tin (Sn), zirconium (Zr), and fluorine (F, in fluorite).

Regional Geology

This geological map and associated information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This does not necessarily represent the complete geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.

Pliocene - Eocene
2.588 - 56 Ma



ID: 2717330
Tertiary intrusive rocks of intermediate to silicic composition

Age: Cenozoic (2.588 - 56 Ma)

Description: Includes monzonitic to granitic plutons, stocks, laccoliths, and porphyritic dikes in deeply eroded magmatic centers; and andesitic, dacitic, or rhyolitic plugs and dikes near cauldrons or stratovolcanoes. In the Latir field, fine-grained rhyolitic dikes commonly cut coarse-grained granitic plutons. Includes alkaline laccoliths, plugs, and dikes in Colfax County. North-trending dikes near Capitan include some mafic diabase dikes.
