Idaho Batholith Geothermal Region


Map: {{{Name}}}

The Idaho batholith is predoninately composed of intrusive rocks of Cretaceous age (average age is 108 m.y.). Granitic and mafic Teritary stocks are abundant in central Idaho and are often exhibit alteration and bleaching and are associated with thermal springs, as well as mineralization. The Teritary dike intrusions may also be associated with major fault zones. Idaho Bureau of Mines and Geology, pamphlet 150, 1971, 73 p.[1]
