Abstract

More than thirty years ago Mr. R. M. Johnston, in a
paper read before this Society, pointed out the great
geological interest of a section exposed on the western side
of Brown's River Road, near One Tree Point.
Mr. Johnston has shown that we have here a volcanic rock of
the Basalt-group overlying sedimentary rocks, which contain
an abundance of plant remains.
Many years later Messrs. McLeod and White examined
the Basalt, and came to the conclusion that it is a basalt
in which Fayalite, the red variety of Olivine, has replaced
the Augite and Olivine.
