The South Mountains of central Arizona are a typical, but geologically simple, metamorphic core complex. The western half of the range is underlain by Precambrian metamorphic and granitic rocks, whereas the eastern half is primarily a composite middle Tertiary Get this from a library.

[Stephen J Reynolds] The South Mountains core complex (SMCC) is the geologically simplest of the core complexes that formed in response to the early to mid-Tertiary extensional orogenic collapse of the western North   The geologic map and accompanyinq text that compose Bulletin represent an important contribution to our understandinq of the geologic framework of Arizona.

The South Mountains are among the recently recognized "metamorphic core complexes" of western North America and, as such, are similar in age and origin to other core complexes in Arizona, including the Rawhide,   The White Mountains and Springerville Volcanic Field of east-central Arizona contain a variety of spectacular geologic features (Figure A).

Because of the relatively sparse vegetation over much of this area, most of these features are easy to recognize and photograph. Similar features occur throughout much of the western United States.

Rocks in the South Mountains of central Arizona are representative of rocks found in metamorphic core complexes elsewhere in Arizona. These core-complex terranes are in part characterized by low-angle mylonitic foliation that contains penetrative northeast-trending mineral lineations and pervasive smearing out of mineral ://   This unit includes granites in the Harcuvar and Harquahala Mountains of western Arizona and in the Santa Catalina, Rincon, Tortolita, Picacho, and Coyote Mountains of south-central Arizona.

These granites typically represent the youngest phase of voluminous magmatism during the Laramide orogeny in Some scientists believe that the Picacho Basin near Eloy in south-central Arizona contains the thickest anhydrite sequence in the world. Anhydrite (CaSO 4) is a gypsum-like mineral.

The sequence consists of about 90 percent anhydrite and 10 percent interbedded shale and is   i / map showing surficial geology of the lathrop wells quadrangle, nevada, $ 10 i / geologic map and discussion of selected mineral resources of the north and south moccasin mountains, montana, $ 10 i / geologic map and sections, bowie mountain south quadrangle, arizona, $ 10   Mountains, for example.

These extension directions documented in the southern Baboquivari Mountains are typical of the southern Papago terrane of south‐central Arizona.
