      Geologic History of West Texas Kevin Urbanczyk1, David Rohr1, and John C. White1 Introduction The region embraced within the Trans-Pecos region of Texas encompasses many snapshots of North American geologic history. Precambrian crystalline metamorphic rocks are exposed in the Franklin Mountains, Van Horn Mountains, and Sierra Diablo Mountains. In West Texas, the Precambrian rocks are exposed at Red Rock Ranch and in the Franklin Mountains near El Paso. But they lie beneath the entire region – as the basement of West Texas. Geologists believe these Precambrian rocks form the “craton” – the stable continental core – for much of Texas.

      The Paleozoic history of central Texas is described in the University Students Geological Societies "Guidebook to the Geology of Travis County " See a highly generalized geologic map of the Llano uplift region. See pictures from this trip in Paleozoic Rocks (brown), Precambrian plutons. PRECAMBRIAN ROCKS Paige (, ) was the first to establish a solid framework for the Precambrian geology of the Llano region. In an excellent review, Clabaugh and McGehee () outlined developments in the understanding of the Precambrian geology of the Llano region for the intervening 50 years. McGehee (b) compiled student mapping in.

The oldest rocks that crop out in the Llano region of Texas are Precambrian metamorphic rocks belonging to the Llano Group, which is subdivided into three formations: Valley Spring Gneiss (the oldest), Lost Creek Gneiss, and Packsaddle Schist (the youngest).

Meta-igneous rocks are common in the three formations, as well as migmatites. Texas J. Sei. 13, MCGEHEE R. () Precambrian geology of south- eastern Llano uplift, Texas. University of Texas Austin, Ph.D.

The Llano uplift represents a structural dome that is precambrian Texas book age. On a regional scale it would look like an island of igneous rock surrounded by earlier sedimentary structures (McGehee). Mosher, The Llano Uplift is a low geologic dome that is about 90 miles ( km) in diameter.

Precambrian rocks more than million years old underlie much of Central and West Texas. These complexly deformed volcanic, intrusive igneous, and metamorphic rocks occur at the surface in the Llano Uplift of Central Texas and in more isolated outcrops in the mountainous Trans-Pecos region.

Most geologic time fits into the extended Precambrian, which lasted from billion years ago to million years ago. But the Llano Uplift does not extend throughout this time.

The oldest parts of the area only date to billion years ago. Precambrian Eon. Precambrian rocks, more than million years old, are exposed at the surface in the Llano Uplift of Central Texas and in scattered outcrops in West Texas, around and north of Van Horn and near El Paso.
