The Wausau Intrusive complex is a Proterozoic group of plutons ranging from nepheline syenite to granite in composition. There are at least 4 major intrusive events. These are, from oldest to youngest, the Stettin complex of syenites to nepheline syenite, the syenitic Wausau Pluton, the quartz syenite of the Rib Mountain Pluton, and the alkali granite of the Nine Mile Pluton. Rib Mountain is a large roof pendant of quartzite caught up in this igneous body. The igneous rocks are often miaroltiic and frequently contain complex pegmatites. They are deeply weathered to grus, and often quarried.
