Powell Buttes, at the southeast edge of the map area, is made of rhyolite domes and associated strata also of John Day age. The Powell Buttes rocks are relatively undeformed and untilted, unlike the John Day strata in the Gray Butte area. A K-Ar age of ± Ma was obtained from Powell Buttes east of the map area (table 2).File Size: KB.
