BackgroundThe 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).
