ID: 3342483
Packard Quartz Latite

Age: Oligocene (23.03 - 33.9 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Packard Quartz Latite

Description: Chiefly pinkish- or lavender-gray medium grained quartz latite porphyry. Generally divisible into four parts: an upper unit of dark-green to black vitrophyre and tuff as much as 50 m thick; a massive middle unit of quartz latite porphyry locally more than 820 m thick; a lower unit of dark-green to black vitrophyre as much as 60 m thick; and a basal unit of fine-grained tuff as much as 210 m thick (Morris and Lovering, 1979) but averaging less than 10 m thick. Biotite and sanidine from the quartz latite porphyry yielded isotopic ages of 32.8 ±1.0 and 32 .7±1.0 m.y. (Laughlin and others, 1969). Chemically and mineralogically similar to the Swansea Quartz Monzonite (Tsw). Present in the East Tintic Mountains in northeast corner of map area, and is lithologically and temporally equivalent to the Fernow Quartz Latite (Tf) of the southern East Tintic Mountains and Sage Valley area. These two formations are the oldest post-tectonic volcanic units in the East Tintic Mountains. Age is middle Oligocene.
