SAMPLE INFO : 74ARh311
Sample ID:74ARh311
Station ID:74ARh311
Latitude:62.065
Longitude:-144.75548
Datum:NAD83
Date Sampled:1974-00-00
Sample Type 1:Lava
Sample Type 2:Flow
Field Lithology:Dacite
Text Description:
Dacite flows of Snider Peak - Massive dark gray weathering hornblende-rich flows that radiate from general area of Snider Peak dome. Flows are as much as a 100 m thick but appear to consist of complex multiple-flow cooling units suggesting possibility of more than one source, perhaps in part including second-cycle cone-building flows. They locally contain abundant concentrations of xenoliths and exhibit conspicuous columnar jointing. Rocks are light gray to pinkish medium gray with abundant medium (2-5 mm) phenocrysts of plagioclase and brown hornblende, minor to common hypersthene, and rare biotite, resorbed augite, and olivine generally in a feldspar-rich pilotaxitic to trachytic groundmass. Glassy phases have hyalopilitic and locally spherulitic groundmass textures. Chemistry: samples 23 (74-AMm-76B), 26 (74-ARh-310)
