|Middle Jurassic - Mississippian|
163.5 - 358.9 Ma
|Black Rock-Jackson Terrane - Basinal, island arc, carbonate, and volcanogenic rocks|
Age: Phanerozoic (163.5 - 358.9 Ma)
Description: This composite terrane includes Mississippian to Middle Triassic oceanic-basin and island-arc rocks in isolated exposures in northwesternmost Nevada originally assigned to the Black Rock terrane, and Upper Triassic to Middle Jurassic volcanogenic and volcanic rocks of the Jackson terrane in the same region. These rocks crop out in southern Washoe, Humboldt, and Pershing Counties. Parts of the Black Rock terrane can be interpreted as the base of the Jackson terrane, but they are generally structurally juxtaposed throughout the region (Jones, 1990; Russell, 1984; Silberling, Jones, and others, 1987; Wyld, 1990). Rocks of this terrane have affinities with correlative rocks in the Eastern Klamath and Northern Sierra terranes in California (Silberling, Jones, and others, 1992).
