Geochronology and correlation of Tertiary volcanic and intrusive rocks in part of the southern Toquima Range, Nye County, Nevada

40Ar/39Ar dating, electron microprobe analyses and geologic mapping help clarify chronology and correlations of the numerous volcanic and intrusive units exposed in the area and interpret the petrogenesis of a few of the volcanic units.

Info
Geochronology of Cenozoic rocks in the Bodie Hills, California and Nevada

Presents data for mineral deposits and unaltered and hydrothermally altered volcanic rocks. Data presented were acquired in three USGS labs by three different geochronologists. Analytical methods and data derived from each lab are presented separately.
