It is difficult for geologists to interpret what Colorado may have looked like during this time, because most of this region's Precambrian-age rocks have been highly altered by extreme heat and pressures.

Precambrian rocks are often called basement rocks, since they are usually buried deep beneath the surface. They only become exposed under special circumstances where the overlying younger rocks.

Just's nomenclature. Muehlberger's () comprehensive review of the Precambrian of the Tusas Mountains follows the nomenclature of Barker ().

Detailed studies include Lind-holm's () structural petrologic analysis of the Ortega Quartzite in the type area, Ritchie's () remapping of The Early and Middle Proterozoic rocks in the Needle Mountains include three distinct rock sequences (1) multiply deformed bimodal metavolcanic rocks, related sedimentary rocks, and plutonio units, all metamorphosed to medium grade; (2) multiply deformed clastic sedimentary rocks metamorphosed to low grade; and (3) weakly foliated to unfoliated plutonic rocks.

Precambrian rocks are often called basement rocks since they are usually buried deep beneath the surface. They only become exposed under special circumstances where the overlying younger rocks have been stripped away.

Most exposures of these ancient rocks are found in the cores of mountain ranges or in deeply eroded canyons like the Black Canyon.

Rocks in shields may range in age from to more than Ga. Metamorphic and plutonic rock types dominate, and pressure-temperature (P-T) regimes recorded in exposed rocks suggest burial depths ranging from 5 km to 40 km or. The metamorphic rocks are sometimes called the Idaho Springs.

There's a big chunk of the sequence that's missing, either because it was never deposited or because it was eroded later – it’s like a book with Missing: Nomenclature.

The name Marquette Range Supergroup is proposed to supplant the term Animikie Series for middle Precambrian strata of the Northern Peninsula of Michigan and adjacent areas of Wisconsin.

The Marquette Range Supergroup consists of the Chocolay, Menominee, Baraga, and Paint River Groups, as defined in previous g: Colorado.

Ancient Proterozoic Precambrian rocks over billion years old form the core of the Rocky Mountains through Colorado. The mountain core is formed of schists and geneisses which were originally comprised of mainly sedimentary (shale, siltstone and sandstone) and some earlier volcanic materials.

In the vicinity of the Questa caldera, the focus of the Day 1 trip, the Taos Range is composed largely of Precambrian rocks partly mantled by mid-Tertiary volcanic rocks of the Latir volcanic field and invaded by coeval and cogenetic granitic rocks related to the caldera (Lipman, ; Lipman and others, ).The Paleobiology Database records no known occurrences of Precambrian fossils in Colorado.
