SAMPLE INFO : 87-ARh-30
Sample ID:87-ARh-30
Station ID:87-ARh-30
Latitude:62.1426
Longitude:-144.0438
Datum:NAD83
Date Sampled:1987-00-00
Sample Type 1:Lava
Sample Type 2:Flow
Field Lithology:Dacite
Text Description:
Mount Sanford Dacite flows (Pleistocene). Massive, light- to medium-light-gray, conspicuously porphyritic dacite flows on west and southeast flanks of Mount Sanford. Flow on west flank contains phenocrysts of plagioclase (4-6%, 1-2 mm), hornblende (2-3%, 1 mm; mostly altered to opaque minerals), and opaque minerals (trace), in trachytic to cryptocrystalline groundmass. Flow fills pronounced topographic low that is possibly along postulated caldera wall; maximum thickness about 500 m. Flow on southeast flank is coarsely porphyritic, containing phenocrysts of plagioclase (15-20%, as large as 1 cm), clinopyroxene (1-3%, 1-2 mm), opaque minerals (1%), and biotite (trace), in microfelty groundmass that consists chiefly of feldspar. Maximum thickness about 150 m.
