The Pleistocene Mineral Mountains-Cove Fort volcanic field contains silicic lava domes in the Mineral Mountains and basaltic and basaltic andesite cinder cones and lava flows of the Cove Fort and adjacent areas. The youngest flows of the Cove Fort field were considered to be of possible early Holocene age (Condie and Barsky 1972), but Potassium-Argon dates of 0.3 million years ago were obtained from the youngest flows (Nash, in Wood and Kienle 1990).

Stop Russia's Agression - Support Ukraine
Significant parts of this website use brilliant open-source software developed by Ukrainians. Russia's unprovoked war has killed tens of thousands, displaced millions, and the beautiful country of Ukraine is being destroyed. We cannot be silent even if the topic of this website has nothing to do with politics.
If you like to support Ukraine from abroad:
Ukrainians recommend the Come Back Alive charity. For other options, see StandWithUkraine.
