Abstract

Two hypotheses are suggested: 1) The Cerro Cobachi terrane is indigenous to N Mexico, and 2) the Cerro Cobachi terrane is indigenous to California and was displaced tectonically to N Mexico. The second hypothesis is favored by the apparently abrupt termination of the Eureka Quartzite near Owens Lake, the nearly identical thickness of the two quartzites, and their nearly identical lithic composition and texture. -from Author
