The Hunter Creek Sandstone of the Verdi Basin, Nevada, yielded a succession of superposed continental faunal assemblages ranging in age from the late Clarendonian (late Miocene) through the late Blancan (late Pliocene) in the North American land mammal age framework, or ca.

Abstract. Overkm 3 of intermediate- to silicic-composition ash flow tuffs and lavas were erupted from large-volume volcanic fields in western North America during the middle to late Cenozoic. Of the commonly used isotope systems, Nd isotope data provide the best constraint on the proportions of crust and mantle components in the tuffs; all tuffs that have been studied contain a major.
