Image Caption: The high spine of the Pyrenees Mts are snow covered and stretch across the
lower part of the picture from left to right)(highest point of the Pyrenees is
3404 m, outside this picture). Snowfree foothills of the Pyrennes in Aquitaine
(France) appear at the bottom (north is to the bottom of the view). The
Pyrenees range began forming about 320 million years ago and was strongly
uplifted again during early stages of Eurasian-African plate collision. Complex
folded strata on the Spanish side (near Pamplona) appear as bends and waves in
foothill rock across the top of the view. Tin, tungsten, talc, fluorite, barium
and gold have been mined from the mountains, and petroleum is produced from the
adjacent Aquitaine sedimentary basin.
