      The area of this data set includes the classic geology and mineral deposits of the Keweenaw Peninsula, renowned for the occurrence of great volumes of Middle Proterozoic flood basalts and the world's largest concentration of native copper. Native copper was mined there continuously from the 's to the 's. For the earlier part of that period the Keweenawan native copper district was the Author: W.F. Cannon, Michele E. McRae, S.W.

      Coordinates. The Thirtynine Mile volcanic area, part of the larger Central Colorado volcanic field, is an extinct volcanic area located in Park and Teller counties, Colorado, northwest of Cripple Creek and southeast of South Park. The area was the site of significant volcanism in the Paleogene Period about 35 million years ago. Ashfall and lahars (mudflows) from the volcanoes created the. Rocks are all around us. They make up the backbones of hills and mountains and the foundations of plains and valleys. Beneath the soil you walk on and the deep layers of soft mud that cover the ocean basins is a basement of hard rock. Rocks are made up of different minerals, broken pieces of crystals, or broken pieces of rocks. Some rocks are.

      The mid-continent rift formed about Ma (million years ago) in the Precambrian. It extends from northern Kansas to Lake Superior, where it sharply turns south to the lower peninsula of Michigan. Toward the center of the rift, the thickness of the volcanic rocks reaches 25 kilometers.

The Kholodnikan Complex consists of two units: lower volcanic and upper volcanic-sedimentary. The distributions of major and trace elements suggest that the protoliths of the lower unit were volcanics of the komatiite-tholeiite series (komatiite-basalt association) and those of the upper unit were volcanics of the calc-alkaline series (andesite-dacite-rhyolite association).Cited by: 1.Geology Lessons.
