|Late to middle Miocene basaltic rocks|
Age: Miocene (7.246 - 20.44 Ma)
Stratigraphic Name: Hickey Formation
Description: Mostly dark, mesa-forming basalt deposited as lava flows. Rocks of this unit are widely exposed south of Camp Verde (Hickey Formation basalts), in the Mohon Mountains north of Bagdad, "The Mesa" east of Parker, and at other scattered locations in western Arizona. Rocks of this unit were not tilted by middle-Tertiary normal faulting except in a narrow belt from north of Phoenix to the northwest corner of the state. (8-16 Ma)
Comments: Hickey Formation, Mohon volcanic field, others
