Description: Generally poorly age constrained. This unit includes rocks originally mapped as the Pyramid sequence in Washoe County, the Mizpah Trachyte in Nye County, the Malpais Basalt, Rabbit Spring Formation, and Mira Basalt in Esmeralda County, and many other poorly dated unnamed basaltic and andesitic rocks around the State. It corresponds to unit Tba on the 1978 State map.
