... is older than the oldest ages of 22.7–28.5 Ma volcanic rocks in the Latir volcanic field to the northeast ( Fig. 1 ; Zimmerer and McIntosh, 2012 ). Consequently, the presence of clasts with a San Juan source suggests these gravels most likely belong to the Hernandez Member of the Chamita Formation...
