Abstract

The Precambrian metamorphosis rocks of the Tijeras Canyon area crop out along a five-mile, northeast-trending belt, which lies approximately five miles east of the Sandia Mountains front, in north-central New Mexico. The sequence, to the east, is overlain uncomfortably by Pennsylvanian Madera limestone, while the trace of the Tijeras fault marks the western side.
