Abstract

Rocks produced by the deformation of conglomeratic sediments strongly resemble pseudodeformed conglomerates in which tectonic disruption of beds, veins and pebbles produce pebblelike bodies. The Goat Island Conglomerate is a tectonic melange containing numerous tectonically formed fragments but is dominantly a metaconglomerate.
