Spanish term or phrase: medianamente intemperizados
This is part of a geology report. The whole paragraph is below. Any help would be much appreciated with this term. Thanks a lot!

Hacia el extremo del nacimiento de la quebrada, desde la zona de las vetas hacia arriba, se desarrollan granodioritas – granitos de quimismo alcalino, rosados, ***medianamente intemperizados*** y también atravesados por enrejados de venillas milimétricas de cuarzo, según la observación de bloques caídos quebrada abajo.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Hi Terry, thanks for your reply. I was thinking this as well - it could well be, but "meteorizado" appears everywhere else in the document for weathering.
