The rock types of the basement, according Adamu (1991), are medium to coarse grained granite, undifferentiated schist, gneisses, granite gneisses, fine grained biotites and biotites-hornblende granite, quartz monzonite
, quartz diorite and granodiorites.
unit, which has been described as a possible diorite and porphyritic microdiorite, monzonite
and granodiorite stock.
Despite its name, Granite Mountain is primarily composed of quartz monzonite
, an igneous rock similar to granite in appearance, physical characteristics, and chemical composition.
Its composition ranges from diorite to monzonite
with gabbros at its border.
Strong alteration was encountered with zones of silicified and tourmaline-altered monzonite
with stockwork quartz veins (up to 0.
Secondary copper mineralization in the Cananea district is hosted by stocks of rhyolite and quartz monzonite
porphyry which were intruded during the Laramide Orogeny in Late Cretaceous-Paleocene time.
A K/Ar age of 2525 [+ or -] 72 Ma (Jambor 1971a) from the quartz monzonite
pluton that intrudes Archean metavolcanic rocks southeast of Cobalt provides an upper age constraint on the volcanic rocks.
Formed by molten liquid that oozed upward from the inner earth, the liquid cooled before reaching the surface, forming an igneous rock called quartz monzonite
, similar to granite.
Before visitors set out to explore the bizarre jumbles of quartz monzonite
that seem like oversized geologic ice-cream scoops or attempt to choose from among the park's 491 campsites, they should stop by the visitor center, located outside the North Entrance Station off Highway 62, in the town of Twentynine Palms.
