Tertiary mafic intrusive rocks

Includes many long basaltic andesite dikes of Oligocene age near Pie Town, Acoma, Riley, Chupadera, Truth or Consequences, Roswell, Raton, and Dulce; and several elongate or shoestring-like sills of basalt or basaltic andesite. Also includes basaltic necks of Pliocene age that dot the landscape northeast of Mount Taylor. Where dikes extend into Quaternary alluvium the contact is an unconformity.
