Pliocene - Eocene
2.588 - 56 Ma



ID: 2848459
Tertiary intrusive rocks of intermediate to silicic composition

Age: Cenozoic (2.588 - 56 Ma)

Description: Includes monzonitic to granitic plutons, stocks, laccoliths, and porphyritic dikes in deeply eroded magmatic centers; and andesitic, dacitic, or rhyolitic plugs and dikes near cauldrons or stratovolcanoes. In the Latir field, fine-grained rhyolitic dikes commonly cut coarse-grained granitic plutons. Includes alkaline laccoliths, plugs, and dikes in Colfax County. North-trending dikes near Capitan include some mafic diabase dikes.
