Earth's Oldest Rocks
The occurrence of hornblendite pods accompanied by quartz-rich quartz dioritic
gneiss between the quartz dioritic and granitic gneisses suggests that fluid
infiltration and thermal metamorphism during granite intrusion also caused partial

The contacts between the dioritic unit and syenite near Stone Rock Bay and
south of McLean Ann are poorly exposed, but cross- cutting relations indicate that
the syenite has intruded the dioritic rocks. In a few places near the boss of Bokan

sive interactions between diorite and granite and both have basal dioritic rocks
that locally grade downward into underlying massive leuconoritic anorthosite. In
the Laramie anorthosite complex, the Maloin Ranch pluton, a composite layered

Only a small part of the pluton extends into the Holden quadrangle, and here the
rocks are gneissic granodiorite. The High Pass and Buck Creek plutons are
tabular, somewhat silllike masses of granodioritic and quartz dioritic composition.

United States Geological Survey Professional Paper
The rocks are mainly of dioritic and gabbroic type; quartz diorite, or tonalite, is
also recorded. The relation of intertectonic rocks to older rocks of the Aden
Metamorphic Group is illustrated in a number of exposures in the Mukayras pass.

Mantle-derived compositions which could represent less “mature” equivalents of
the high-Sr granites include: (1) dioritic enclaves; (2) mafic metaigneous lower
crustal xenoliths, and (3) kersantites and minettes (Turpin et al. 1988), which will

The deformation and metamorphism of these rocks occurred in part prior to the
emplacement of dioritic dikes and stocks, although in most areas the younger
diorites share these deformational fabrics. A heterogeneous assemblage of

(3) Large positive ovoid magnetic anomalies occur over Tertiary and Quaternary
igneous rocks that range in age from 38 m.y. to about 1.0 m.y. These rocks are
dioritic to granitic in composition and presumably are related to subduction in the

In the Granitic group the granites are found interstratified with the Huronian
schists of the Dioritic group. The granites are usually middling coarse grained
and in the main are massive, although distinct gneissoid rocks have a limited
