I thought you might be interested in this item at Title: Geology of the precambrian rocks of the Llano uplift, Central Texas: field trip notes Author: James B Garrison; David Mohr; Austin Geological Society (Tex.) Publisher: Austin, Tex.: Austin Geological Society, OCLC The Llano Uplift of Central Texas is a broad st ructural dome exposing Precambrian granites and metamorphic rocks (basement ro cks) through an erosional window of Paleozoic and Mesozoic sediments.   Geologic overview A complete description of Precambrian rocks of the Llano uplift is presented elsewhere (Mosher, ) and only summarized here (Fig. 1). Meta- morphic units of the Llano uplift are well-foliated and record a polyphase history evidenced by one or more penetrative fabrics accompanied by synkine- matic mineral growth at Cited by: STRUCTURAL GEOLOGY 31 SMP BLOCK 31 SAN ANDRES MOUNTAINS 32 PEDERNAL HILLS 32 LADRON MOUNTAINS 33 exposed Precambrian rocks in central and south-central From oil tests penetrating the Precambrian basement in west Texas and eastern New Mexico and from surface exposures of Precambrian rock, basement terranes can be characterized by.

Precambrian and Paleozoic rocks in the Llano Uplift are deformed by what two types of geologic structure? fault and folding Paleozoic Sedimentary Rocks, North-Central Texas: In what two geologic periods were the strata deposited?   Central Texas, it turns out, is a great place to view Precambrian history. The oldest rocks in Texas can be found in the Llano Uplift, dating back billion years. For example, the ancient batholith Enchanted Rock was formed during the Precambrian Era. To put that into perspective, the Jurassic Period was 56 million years ago.

Precambrian rocks more than million years old underlie much of Central and West Texas. These complexly deformed volcanic, intrusive igneous, and metamorphic rocks occur at the surface in the Llano Uplift of Central Texas and in more isolated outcrops in the mountainous Trans-Pecos region.   〉 Rock formations of Central Texas we will stop at a local gypsum quarry, observe billion year old rocks under the Llano Bridge and tourist stop known as “The Slab”. Many of the road cuts are great for learning general Texas geology and collecting rock samples for educators and earth science enthusiast alike.

Further south, the Central Texas Uplift of the Great Plains province contains gneiss and granite that formed between and 1 million years ago. The Franklin Mountains near El Paso, Texas, part of the Basin and Range province, also contain Precambrian-aged rock. Figure Geologic regions of the South Central.
