Abstract

Examination of a rock suite from the northern end of the Boulder batholith reveals that four of the eight criteria for assimilation as given by Grout are present. Thus, in the opinion of the writer, there is evidence and trends to signify assimilation, but no indication of the importance that it played in the formation of the Boulder batholith.
