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.

Neogene
2.588 - 23.03 Ma



ID: 3186305
Cenozoic volcanic rocks

Age: Neogene (2.588 - 23.03 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Columbia River Basalt

Comments: Columbia Plateau

Lithology: Flood basalt(s); mafic volcanic rocks; basalt

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]

Miocene
5.333 - 23.03 Ma



ID: 2871903
Younger silicic ash flow tuffs

Age: Miocene (5.333 - 23.03 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Timber Mountain Tuff; Paintbrush Tuff; Crater Flat Tuff; Belted Range Tuff

Description: Includes units mapped as the High Rock sequence on the Washoe North map; the Timber Mountain, Paintbrush, Crater Flat, and Belted Range Tuffs, and Indian Trail Formation (now abandoned) on the Nye South map; the Thirsty Canyon Tuff on the Nye South and Esmeralda maps; and other unnamed units. Locally it includes tuffaceous sedimentary rocks interstratified with tuffs. It is present in the northernmost part and southernmost parts of the State, and is not exposed in the central region. It corresponds to unit Tt3 on the 1978 State map, although a few rocks also mapped as Trt on the 1978 State map also are included. It is present in Clark, Churchill, Washoe, Nye, Lincoln, Lyon, Douglas, Carson, Esmeralda, Elko, Humboldt, Pershing, and Mineral Counties.
