Volcanic activity at Magnet Cove, Arkansas

August 31, 1938

The igneous rocks and the minerals of Magnet Cove, Arkansas, have long interested geologists and mineralogists, but in much of the area rock‐exposures are so sparse that many of the geologic, relations have remained obscure. However, recent prospecting and the mining of titanium ores have uncovered rocks that throw new light on the geology of the region. The regional rocks of the area are sandstones, slates, and novaculite of Paleozoic age. They were folded and underwent metamorphism in late Paleozoic time. In Cretaceous time they were intruded by a series of igneous rocks. ©1938. American Geophysical Union. All Rights Reserved.
