Hildenbrand and Ravat (1997) inferred the locations of near-surface dikes fromanalyses of high-resolution aeromagnetic data. The lines represent locationsof magnetic highs that they interpreted as dikes. Modeling indicates thedikes are vertical, extend to within 200 m of the surface, and have themagnetic properties of mafic or ultramafic rock. Some of the interpreteddikes coincide with the easternmost Early Permian, mica peridotite andperhaps lamprophyre dikes that Nelson mapped (these are in cover lampdike.)Hildenbrand and Ravat concluded that the interpreted dikes arealso probably Early Permian ultramafic intrusions.
