Geochemical and isotopic data obtained from three bimodal basalt-rhyolite fields in west-central Arizona point to significant variation in the sources of the siliceous products despite petrological similarities between them. The studied fields, which straddle the boundary between the Basin and Range and Colorado Plateau physiographic provinces, include Castaneda Hills (CH) in the Basin and Range, Kaiser Spring (KS) in the Transition Zone, and Mount Floyd (MF) in the Colorado Plateau. Two types of rhyolite (high-silica [HSR] and low-silica [LSR]) occur as lavas in the KS and MF fields, whereas all analysed CH samples are HSR. These lavas generally post-date low-angle...
