SAMPLE INFO : 84-ARh-98
Sample ID:84-ARh-98
Station ID:84-ARh-98
Latitude:62.225
Longitude:-144.237
Datum:NAD83
Date Sampled:1984-00-00
Sample Type 1:Other
Sample Type 2:Plutonic
Field Lithology:Rhyolite
Text Description:
Mount Sanford hypabyssal rhyolite pluton (Pleistocene). Small, massive, reddish-gray, porphyritic hornblende rhyolite associated with west Sanford eruptive center. Rock contains phenocrysts of plagioclase (5-8%, average 1 mm) and hornblende (trace to 1%, average <1 mm; locally altered), in trachyitic groundmass of plagioclase and hornblende microlites in cryptocrystalline matrix. Pluton may be ring-fracture intrusion along postulated caldera wall.
