      Kisvarsanyi, Eva B., - Geology of the Precambrian St. Francois Terrane southeast-ern Missouri. Rolla, Missouri: Missouri Department of Natural Resources, Division of Geology and Land Survey Contribution to Precambrian Geology No. 8, Report of Investigations The St. Francois Mountains are a relatively small region of + billion year old igneous rocks in southeastern Missouri and are home to some of the most unique natural features in the state. These small mountains contain Missouri's most ancient of landscapes, many of the highest points in the state, and form the core of the Ozarks.

Click on a highlighted area to see a list of geophysical stratigraphic and geophysical downhole logs that are available. In Roadside Geology of Missouri, author Charlie Spencer shows you around the state? from the flat, glaciated plains in the north to the knobs of rhyolite in the St. Francois Mountains in the south, and from the earthquake-formed sand boils on the Mississippi floodplain in the southeast to the layers of coal, shale, sandstone, and limestone on.

      Proterozoic Geology of the St. Francois Mountains, Southeastern Missouri Thomas G. Plymate. Since the late ’s, I have been involving some of the better Missouri State undergraduate geology majors in a long-term research project involving the Proterozoic igneous rocks exposed in the St. Francois Mountains of southeastern Missouri. Includes St. Francois Mountains Volcanic Supergroup and St. Francois Mountains Intrusive Suite. [The same name should not be used for different units.] Though its boundaries are not well defined, data from more than drillholes indicate that terrane underlies most of southeast MO having an inferred areal extent of at least , km2.

CP The St. Francois Mountains in southeast Missouri are a mountain range of Precambrian igneous mountains rising over the Ozark range is one of the oldest exposures of igneous rock in North America.

The name of the range is spelled out as Saint Francois Mountains in official GNIS sources, but it is sometimes misspelled in use as St. Francis Mountains to match the anglicized Age of rock: Precambrian. The St. Francois Mountains are the principal exposure of an extensive terrane of Precambrian silicic volcanic and epizonal intrusive rocks that extends from central Wisconsin and northern Ohio at least to the Texas Panhandle.

Francois terrane, southeastern Missouri [] Kisvarsanyi, Eva B. Rolla, Mo.: Missouri Dept. of Natural Resources, Division of Geology and Land Survey, The Precambrian (or Pre-Cambrian, sometimes abbreviated pЄ, or Cryptozoic) is the earliest part of Earth's history, set before the current Phanerozoic Eon.

The Precambrian is so named because it preceded the Cambrian, the first period of the Phanerozoic eon, which is named after Cambria, the Latinised name for Wales, where rocks from this age were first studied.

The St. Francois Mountains igneous complex of Proterozoic age consists of hypabyssal, granite plutons intruded into the overlying rhyolites of similar age.
