Title: Late Paleozoic Lavas in Maya Mountains, British Honduras, and Their Possible Regional Significance: GEOLOGICAL NOTES

Author(s): I. H. S. Hall (2), J. H. Bateson (2)


During a recent geologic and geochemical survey of the Maya Mountains, British Honduras, a thick section of upper Paleozoic volcanic rocks and its relation to surrounding rocks were studied for the first time. Little or no information on volcanic rocks of this age in northern Central America has appeared in press, though the existence of similar rocks has been recorded in unpublished reports on northwestern Guatemala. Recognition of the fact that they form an integral part of the sedimentary sequence throws a new light on the later stages of development of the northern Central American geosyncline.
