The magma assimilated anatectic melt from the lower Belt-Purcell Supergroup in the western half of the graben, where the Lemhi subbasin had intersected and deepened the graben by several kilometers. The magma stepped across the stratigraphic section as it intruded eastward along the graben, spread laterally as it climbed into the overlying Paleozoic and Mesozoic...
