The composite Cenozoic stratigraphic section of the Tucson basin is at le feet thick. The steeply tilted to flat-lying section is composed of indurated to unconsolidated clastic sediments, evaporites, and volcanic rocks that are lithologically and structurally complex.

Pre-Cenozoic rocks ex-posed in the map area are of Precambrian, Permian, and Cretace-ous age, but the subsurface pre-Cenozoic stratigraphic record is probably more nearly complete.

Precambrian Rocks: Carrizo Mountain Formation The Carrizo Mountain Formation includes the oldest exposed rock in the region and is best exposed about eight kilometers. In the midst of the mountains is the Valles caldera, a sub-circular volcanic depression 12 to 15 miles in diameter, to 2, feet deep, and surrounded by peaks that rise to altitudes exceed feet.

Within this depres-sion are the beautiful high-montane valleys for which the region is so well known and from which the mountains take. Originally the region was called the Puebla Mining District, a name applied in the early s by miners and prospectors.

It was later gender-corrected to Pueblo, the Spanish word for city or village. The highest point is Pueblo Mountain, a 8,foot peak along the east section of. The two Cenozoic units have been dated and correlated on the basis of radiometric age determination of the inter-bedded extrusive volcanic rocks, on lithologic character, and with the help of seismic interpretation.

Sedimentation during early Cenozoic time (Unit I) took place in broad interior depressions under predominantly continental conditions. The Pueblo Mountains are truly a land of hidden charms. Located just south of Steens Mountain, this little-visited range appears dry, desolate and barren when first viewed from the Fields-Denio highway.

Its green stream canyons and colorful rock formations are concealed within the range’s interior, though still easily accessible. Cenozoic Paleogeography of the West-Central United States, Pages Cenozoic Rocks of the Intermontane Basins of Western Montana and Eastern Idaho: A Summary.

Park, p. The Pueblo Mountains WSA (OR/NV) is located 96 miles south of Burns and 5 miles south of Fields, Oregon. Almost all of the area is within Harney County, although a small portion crosses the state line into Humboldt County, Nevada. The entire study area lies to the west of the main north-south county road which runs between Fields and Denio, Nevada.

About the Pueblo Mountains Part of the Great Basin, the Pueblo Mountains are a remote north-south oriented mountain range in southeastern Oregon and northwestern Nevada, just south of Steens Mountain and Alvord Desert.

Although it is not as large as neighboring Steens, this mile long range is also a fault block mountain. Most of the [ ]. The Geomorphology and Volcanic Sequence of Steens Mountain in Southeastern Oregon ORIGIN OF THE STRUCTURE Inafter a brief reconnaissance, W. Smith published a paper 16 on the stratigraphy and structure of Steens and Pueblo Mountains, chiefly for the purpose of advancing a compressional interpretation of the origin of the former.

Pequop Mountains with undeformed Cambrian units to the east. Consequently, recognition of a new stratigraphy has resulted in a new structural and stratigraphic picture of the Pequop Mountains, which is presented herein.

Mapping of the Pequop Mountains was conducted from to U.S. Geological Survey ,scale. The southern Rocky Mountains province extends through northern New Mexico, Colorado, and southern Wyoming. This area has a diverse and protracted geologic history dominated by contractional Laramide deformation, attendant basin sedimentation, and Andean-type arc volcanism during the early Cenozoic.

The Pueblo Mountains are tilted fault block mountains found in the extreme northwestern part of the Basin and Range province and were produced during Early Tertiary Basin and Range orogeny. Northwest and northeast trending faults of Late Tertiary time have since cut the entire stratigraphic sequence.
