SAMPLE INFO : 94SJP97
Sample ID:94SJP97
Station ID:94SJP97
Latitude:62.32238575
Longitude:-143.4463014
Datum:NAD83
Date Sampled:1994-00-00
Sample Type 1:Lava
Sample Type 2:Dike

Text Description:
Sample is from a polygonal jointed feeder dike on the west side of Goat Creek. The entire ridge is full of these dikes all running subparallel to each other. Fine grained, hypocrystalline, porphyritic with a matrix of pale brown glass, plagioclase, microlites, opaque and orthopyroxene. Plagioclase phenocrysts are up to 3.37 mm, but most are smaller laths; the largest grains are rounded. Orthopyroxene phenocrysts are up to 1.0 mm. Clinopyroxene phenocrysts are up to 0.2 mm. Opaque phenocrysts are up to 0.35 mm.
