The relations of the lower marine beds to the diabasic
greenstone between Passage Point and Long Bay show that the greater mass of
the greenstone, as also shown by the recent bore test at the
Cascades, is older than the overlying mudstones which quietly
repose upon it. In one section, however, opposite Half-moon
Bay, both the older greenstone and the mudstones are
penetrated by an intrusive sheet of greenstone of later date.
