Abstract : This is a study of the geology of Red Island, Placentia Bay, Newfoundland. The geological formations and their contacts were mapped and their interrelationships are shown by a petrographic study. Fossils of Middle Cambrian age were found. The sedimentary rocks show a progressively increasing grade of metamorphism and have been intruded by diabase dykes and sills, and granite. The Acadian or Caledonian orogeny has only slightly affected the island. No minerals of economic importance were discovered. Very good. 75.00
