Abstract

The areal geology of a part of the Elizabeth Lake quadrangle, Southern California, shows four types of plutonic rocks and their hypabyssal equivalents; an Archaen metamorphic series of sedimentary origin; Tertiary volcanics, flows and associated tufts, with basal fanglomorate beds. Faulting is extensive. The San Andreas and one other large fault border the area. Minor faults are numerous. There are no known deposits of commercial value in the area.
