1 PETERS, H.R. Geology of the Stony lake Area, Central Newfoundland
Dalhousie University, Halifax :, 1953, 
PETERS, H.R. Geology of the Stony lake Area, Central Newfoundland. Halifax : Dalhousie University, 1953. Pp (1),i-iii,(2),[1]-39 leaves typed one sideonly,+ 11 leaves of original tipped in photographic plates,+ large folding chart,+ large folding map in rear pocket. 4to, three-hole black card cover s. An original copy of Peters's Master of Science thesis at Dalhousie University. Abstract : A large variety of rocks occur in the area, volcanics, sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic. They range from Ordovician to Late Devonian in age. The basement rocks are not exposed. A tentative correlation ismade between the sediments and volcanics of the map area, and those occurr ing in other parts of Notre Dame Bay. Evidence is presented which casts some doubt on the correctness of the accepted correlation and age of the sedimentary rocks. A significant angular unconformity is recognized separating the Springdale and Rattling Brook formations. This, it is believed will be of great importance in the interpretation of the geology of central and northeastern Newfoundland. An extensive area of gneissic rocks occurs in the south and south-eastern portions of the area. The region has been deformed byat least three orogenic movements, and associated with these are intrusive masses. Metamorphism resulting from the granodiorite intrusion has affecte d the rocks of the area. The occurrence of tremolite asbestos in the ultrabasics warrants further investigation. Possibilities of sulphide mineralization seem to be limited to the felsic intrusion near the ultrabasics. Because of the complexity of the structure and variations in rock types, possibilities of hidden ore bodies cannot be overlooked. Chart partially detached, smudge to one page, else very good. 75.00
