According to modern geological reporting, most of the discoveries occurred in Eocene river channels, capped by solid layers of Miocene latite several hundred feet. We have made paleomagnetic measurements on Cretaceous and Eocene sedimentary rocks of San Miguel Island, California, which are western lithofacies of rocks cropping out on the Baja peninsula.
