Abstract

Deformed sedimentary rocks assigned to the Franciscan assemblage in the King Range S of Cape Mendocino, N California, are dominantly deep-water argillite and sandstone occurring as thick- to thin-bedded, locally channelized marine turbidities of arkosic to andesitic volcaniclastic composition. The King Range appears to be a displaced terrane of oceanic basement overlain by Palaeogene(?) and Neogene sedimentary and igneous rocks of continental and oceanic derivation.-Authors
