Exceptionally clear intrusive relationships, and the only example of the sharp segregation of the contact minerals into distinctive zones, were to be seen on the south wall of this quarry in the group (Am.Min.: 26: 352-381).

This quarry was deepened and extended from 1940 until 1954.

Pleistocene - Middle Pleistocene
0.0117 - 0.781 Ma



ID: 2266548
Old eolian deposits (dune sand), Unit 3

Age: Pleistocene (0.0117 - 0.781 Ma)

Description: Slightly consolidated to moderately consolidated, yellowish brown (10YR 5/4) to light yellowish brown (10YR 6/4) and very pale brown (10YR 7/4), fine- to medium- grained sand and lesser amounts of silty sand and slightly gravelly sand that is well sorted to poorly sorted. Occurs on Rialto-Colton terrace west of Lytle- Creek-Cajon Creek Wash and north of Santa Ana River. Depositional structures are texturally massive to finely laminated. Forms large north-trending longitudinal dunes. Unit may be as much as 80 ft thick where dune forms are tallest (Clarke, 1977)
