Description:
The Mount Morrison pendant consists of middle(?) Cambrian to middle(?) Permian metasedimentary rocks that are structurally overlain by Triassic and Jurassic metavolcanic rocks. These rocks have been intruded and partially engulfed by Mesozoic granitic plutons and are now preserved as an isolated remnant of older rocks within the predominantly Cretaceous Sierra Nevada batholith. Such isolated remnants of country rock have historically been referred to as roof pendants, although many actually occur as screens between individual plutons and are more accurately described as wall-rock septa.
