    Named for exposures at Picture Gorge, Grant Co, OR where type section is designated [no other locality information]. Occurs in northwest OR, southeast WA, and western ID. Same rocks called "Columbia Lava" by Merriam () in the John Day basin. Most flows holocrystalline; some fine-grained. The Picture Gorge Basalt Subgroup was mapped over an area of 1, km 2 in the John Day Basin in north-central Oregon. Lateral continuity of the Twickenham, Monument Mountain, and Dayville Basalts is demonstrated, and each is elevated to formation status within the Picture Gorge Basalt Subgroup of the Columbia River Basalt Group.

    Mascall Formation – million years: Fine-grained ash and lakes beds, as well as river sediments deposited on top of the Columbia River Mascall Formation is about feet thick near Picture Gorge and the Mascall ranch landscape consisted of several broad basins with lakes and meandering streams that formed atop the last of the basalt flows. Named as third from top of four members of John Day Formation. First used by Rensberger, (). Measured section is exposures in sec. 32, T10S R26E, Foree State Park, Picture Gorge quad, Grant Co. OR. Composed of fine- to (rarely) coarse-grained massive, diagenetically altered, occasionally zeolitized, variegated tuffs.

    A number of K-Ar ages on rocks shown on source maps as part of the Clarno Formation are in the range of about 36 to 19 Ma (Fiebelkorn and others, ). Although these rocks are lithologically similar to, but generally less altered than, rocks of the Clarno Formation, they are coeval with the John Day Formation. Presented here are the results of a magnetostratigraphic study conducted from to on the John Day Formation, which ranges in age from about 39 to 18 Ma and includes the strata that rest disconformably on the upper Eocene Clarno Formation and nonconformably below the middle Miocene Columbia River Basalts ().The John Day Formation crops out in three geographically distinct regions.

The Picture Gorge Basalts (PGBs) are found all throughout the Sheep Rock Unit of the monument, seen close to the tops of the John Day Valley's peaks.

These basalts were emplaced 16 million years ago (Mya) by a John Day formation in the Picture Gorge quadrangle of 61 sporadic lava flows that erupted, on average, ev year from fissures in the Earth’s crust. 1 Coleman, R.

The John Day Formation is a series of rock strata exposed in the Picture Gorge district of the John Day River basin and elsewhere in north-central Oregon in the United States.

Aside from the Picture Gorge district, which defines the type, the formation is visible on the surface in two other Picture Gorge exposure lies east of the Blue Mountain uplift, which cuts southwest–northeast.

Isotopic determinations of Mascall Formation age do not distinguish it from the 15 Ma of Picture Gorge basalt but the Mascall rests conformably upon the PGB. The map area is located in the north-central part of the Picture Gorge quadrangle in Wheeler and Grant Counties, Oregon (Ts.

Joining Army escorts to the Canyon City gold fields, Condon searched the John Day Valley for riches of another sort. Oregon gold for the Union might decide the war. Oregon fossils for science might decide the evolution controversy.

Daring the passage through Picture Gorge inCondon discovered a lost world of eroded gullies and pinnacles. John Day is a city located about 1 mile ( km) north of Canyon City in Grant County, Oregon, at the intersection of U.S.

Routes 26 and The city was named for the nearby John Day River, which had been named for a Virginian member of the Astor Expedition, John Day. Cahoon also studies the Picture Gorge Basalt (a subunit of the CRBG), and has discovered that these lava flows cover a much larger area than previously recognized.

The Picture Gorge Basalt, which has had its mantle source questioned, may also contain critical evidence to aid in the evaluation of the plume during the mid-Miocene.
