Middle Cambrian
501 - 511 Ma

ID: 3028478
Wichita Granite Group

Age: Cambrian (501 - 511 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Wichita Granite Group

Description: CLINTON- Pink, medium-grained granite; three outliers have been mapped in the southern part of quadrangle. LAWTON- Granites of various textures; thickness, 600 to 15,000 feet (180 to 4,570 m).

Comments: Probably named for Wichita Mountains of southern OK. Report area is southern Oklahoma, where it is present in (east to west, mostly subsurface): western Jefferson, Cotton, Comanche, Kiowa, and Greer Cos (South Oklahoma folded belt province); Beckham and Washita Cos (Anadarko basin); and Jackson and Harmon Cos (Palo Duro basin). Consists chiefly of perthite leucogranites of various textures representing multiple intrusions, in part having the form of extensive sills 600 to 1,500 ft thick intruding the lower part of the Carlton Rhyolite Group [revised--Carlton is the extrusive equivalent of Wichita], and in part occurring as irregular plutons and sills cutting all other rocks of the "Wichita Province." (Ham, 1963).

Lithology: Major:{granite}
