      Portage Lake Volcanics; Rhyolite at Bergland: Geologic age: Middle Proterozoic: Lithologic constituents: Major Igneous > Volcanic > Felsic-volcanic > Rhyolite (Flow) rhyolite at Bergland MI, part of the Portage Lake Volcanics. References.   Portage Lakes is a unique area that lies within the boundaries of Coventry Township and the cities of Green and New Franklin. Within the last century, the communities have gradually moved from agrarian in nature to those of classical developing suburbs. Carolyn Vogenitz lives in Portage Lakes and is the author of the book Portage Lakes Then.

      Journals & Books; Help Provenance indicators such as Ti/Zr and Ti/Al ratios and La-Th-Sc ternary diagrams reveal that the Portage Lake Volcanic conglomerates are near-source, and that the Copper Harbor Conglomerate is primarily derived from felsic uplifted basement and recycled orogen lithologies to the east. The Jacobsville Sandstone is a. In the cross-sectional view below, a part of the Portage Lake Volcanics extending SW from Keweenaw Point (right in the figure) to Victoria (left) about 80 miles is shown. Note that conglomerate units are numbered and there are 17 of these among hundreds of lava flows. Thicker lava flows such as the Greenstone flow are shaded.

      While the Portage Lake District Library’s meeting room is not currently available, library staff remain committed to serving the community by facilitating connections using Zoom, a virtual meeting service.

All rocks are of Keweenawan age (Pre Cambrian) erupted rocks, but only about 5 km is exposed on the Keweenaw peninsula. The period of rift volcanism extended from to Ma, with the Portage Lake Volcanics erupting over a two or.

Minor. Mineral Search Search Google. The Portage Lake Volcanics (PLV) are the host rock unit for both native and sulfide copper deposits.

The total thickness of the PLV is about 10 kilometers, of which 5 kilometers are exposed on the Keweenaw Peninsula (Cannon, ). The Portage Lake Volcanics consist of over subaerial flood basalt lava flows with occasional interflow sediment layers (Bornhorst, ).

We studied the effects of hydrothermal alteration on magnetic properties of the magnetite and hematite components in the Ga Portage Lake Volcanics, Upper Peninsula, Michigan.

Results show the importance of the intensity and direction of the hematite magnetization in the detection of secondary magnetite overprints in basalts. The Portage Lake Volcanics on Isle Royale and on the Keweenaw Peninsula represent only the upper part of the total Keweenawan volcanic sequence in the Lake Superior region.

The lower part of the sequence is exposed in the so-called South Trap Range of westernmost Michigan and along the north shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota and Ontario.

Dips of the strata range from less than 10° to 55°; they are generally steeper on the north side of the island than on the south side and average less than 20°. The increase in dip. The Portage Lake Volcanics consists primarily of lava flows; minor sedimentary rocks, similar to those within the Copper Harbor Conglomerate, are intercalated between flows (hereafter referred to as interflow sedimentary rocks).

The transition between the two formations reflects a gradual cessation of volcanic activity and the growing dominance. Geochemistry, petrography, and volcanology of rhyolites of the Portage Lake volcanics, Keweenaw Peninsula, Michigan / by Suzanne W.

Nicholson. Reviews User-contributed reviews. A lower age limit for the sandstone is established from large basalt clasts derived probably from the Portage Lake Volcanics, and from the occurrence of the sandstone as dikes in the volcanics.

The upper age is based on its position below the late Cambrian Munising Sandstone. A geologic map of Isle Royale National Park at a scale ofpublished separately (Huber, b), provides details of the distribution and structure of the Portage Lake Volcanics not possible to show at the scale of maps in the present report, and it is recommended that that map be used in.

Named from Portage Lake (White and others, ).If secondary rotation has affected the sedimentary rocks, then underlying volcanic rocks should also demonstrate a similar rotation. Thirty-one sites were collected from the Portage Lake Volcanics in the most highly curved part of the Keweenaw Peninsula in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
