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.

Paleoproterozoic
1600 - 2500 Ma



ID: 3192520
Paleoproterozoic crystalline metamorphic rocks

Age: Proterozoic (1600 - 2500 Ma)

Lithology: Orthogneiss/paragneiss

Paleoproterozoic
1600 - 2500 Ma



ID: 3300453
Metavolcanic rocks, metasedimentary rocks, and metagabbro sills, undivided

Age: Proterozoic (1600 - 2500 Ma)

Description: onsist of interbedded tan, dark-gray, and black amphibolite, interbedded biotite-rich gneiss and schist, quartzite, and calc-silicate gneiss intruded by numerous metagabbroic sills; larger metagabbro sills are mapped separately (unit Xgs). In the Salida East quadrangle, the metasedimentary rocks consist of medium-gray to black, light-gray, and grayish-tan, fine- to very fine-grained, metasiltstones, metagraywackes, and quartzite (Boardman, 1976; Wallace and others, 1997). Where visible, relict bedding is parallel to foliation. Volcanic protoliths are a bimodal assemblage of dacitic to rhyolitic volcanic rocks and basalt flows. The metagabbro sills appear as poorly foliated amphibolite in the south part of the map area. Foliation increases abruptly northward in all rocks of the map unit, and in the northern Salida East and Salida West quadrangles relict sedimentary and volcanic structures are no longer discernable, apparently due to the effects of the large granitic intrusion just north of the sequence (Boardman, 1976). Metamorphic grade also increases northward, such that sillimanite replaces biotite and muscovite in pelitic rocks (Boardman, 1976). Also mapped extensively in the southern Maysville quadrangle (Shannon and McCalpin (2006). Unit is mapped where metavolcanic and metasedimentary units are generally too thin to map separately. Contains a quartzite layer (qc) at two localities in southern Maysville quadrangle that is interpreted as a metachert (Shannon and McCalpin, 2006). U-Pb zircon (SHRIMP) dates on metadacite samples near Salida are 1,732±4 Ma (Kellogg and others, 2017) and 1,728±6 Ma (Bickford and others, 1989). These ages indicate that these rocks correlate with the younger (1,730–1,740 Ma) of two metavolcanic sequences exposed closer to Gunnison (Bickford and others, 1989)
