Biotite-Muscovite Granite

Light-gray, fine- to coarse grained, muscovite-biotite granite, biotite-muscovite granite, and leucogranite with accessory garnet. The granite is undated but interpreted as part of the Pennsylvanian-Permian suite of granites, and considered as part of the Wise pluton, which can be traced into North Carolina (McSween and others, 1991).
