Abstract

This peculiar and interesting rock occurs in considerable
quantity at North-east Dundas, on the property held under
mineral lease by the Colebrook Prospecting Association
(Section 216, 93m). It apparently consists of a huge contact
mass, which is of an irregular lenticular form, being bounded
on its eastern side by a hard dark-coloured metamorphic
slate, probably of silurian age, and on the western side
wholly or partially by green serpentine, which is in places
much decomposed.
Includes photographic plate of Limurite and Axinite
