The point under discussion is the origin of the "formation""
known as the " Iron Blow," the oxidised portion of which was
described by Mr. Thureau as " volcanic mud or ash." Mr.
Johnston, however, from close examination on the spot, and
from the " internal evidence " yielded by specimens,
etc., has attributed to this a non-volcanic origin. Includes discussion by Mr. W. F. Ward, Government Analyst.
