Geologic setting

Geologic description

The country rocks at this site are basalt(?) flows of the Eocene to Oligocene Meshik Volcanics (Wilson and others, 1995). They are interbedded with volcanic breccia and contain pockets of sedimentary rocks containing abundant fossil oysters. Two samples collected here by the U.S. Geological Survey in the mid-1980s were reported to be anomalous in antimony, copper, and zinc (Wilson and others, 1988).
