The 1.3 Ga Graniteville Granite exposed at Elephant Rocks State Park, MO. The Graniteville Granite is the youngest of the granites in the St. Francois Mountains.

In the foreground are nice examples of weathering pans. These features form as the pan fills with water and the rock undergoes chemical weathering along the edges of the pan. The existence of weathering pans is good evidence that the rock surface has not been glaciated.

In the background, large granite boulders, the remnants of spheriodal weathering, rest upon the bedrock.
