Newly generated and previously published strontium isotope signatures of plagioclase phenocrysts in Columbia River Basalt Group lavas exhibit heterogeneity largely imposed by mantle-derived magmas assimilating variable crustal rocks. Steens basalts assimilated accreted terrane crust with 87Sr/86Sr ratios of <0.7040. In contrast, Imnaha, Grande Ronde, Wanapum, and Saddle Mountains basalts likely assimilated crust with more radiogenic Sr (>0.7040) including a cratonic component, perhaps as a result of residence in magma chambers partly located east of the 87Sr/86Sr = 0.7060 line. Strontium isotope ratios in plagioclase phenocrysts from early- erupted Imnaha basalts anticipate whole-rock signatures of...
