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.

Quaternary - Miocene
0 - 23.03 Ma



ID: 3185380
Cenozoic sedimentary rocks

Age: Cenozoic (0 - 23.03 Ma)

Lithology: Sedimentary rocks

Reference: Chorlton, L.B. Generalized geology of the world: bedrock domains and major faults in GIS format: a small-scale world geology map with an extended geological attribute database. doi: 10.4095/223767. Geological Survey of Canada, Open File 5529. [154]

Paleoproterozoic
1600 - 2500 Ma



ID: 3176185
Partly retrograded garnet gneiss

Age: Proterozoic (1600 - 2500 Ma)

Description: Dark garnet-quartz-plagioclase paragneiss, chlorite-biotite paragneiss, cordierite-sillimanite gneiss, migmatite, pods of leucogranite gneiss, and local amphibolite, meta-andesite (?), and feldspathic gneiss. Garnet and garnet pseudomorph abundance decreases from Gold Butte area southward to White Hills, where correlated with paragneiss unit mapped by Blacet (1975) and gneiss unit described by Theodore and others (1987). Protolith age 1700 Ma or greater (Wasserburg and Lanphere, 1965; Chamberlain and Bowring, 1990; Wooden and DeWitt, 1991). Locally retrograded, most likely during Mesozoic or Miocene event. Based on degree of retrograde textures mapped by Fryxell and others (1992)

Comments: Chloritic and sericitic halos rim and partially replace the garnets
