Page 19 - There are two centers of alaskite porphyry, and each is a center of ore deposition. The important copper deposits consist of large masses of pyritic ore, surrounded in most places by alaskite porphyry but here and there extending into shale. The ores are...
Page 58 - The fine sericite schist and schistose arkose at the base of the Cambrian are followed by the hard conglomerate and quartzite that form the higher ridges and peaks of South Mountain. ORE DEPOSITS. The copper ore is associated chiefly with the basic lavas, but in a few places is found in the porphyry. It is further restricted chiefly, if not entirely, to the large greenstone mass, previously referred to as a large flow apparently underlying the porphyry, for copper is not known to occur in the narrow...

Page 13 - ... comprises the Kennett formation (Middle Devonian) , which consists chiefly of black fissile shale, with scattered lenses of light-gray limestone and numerous gray or yellowish beds of tuffaceous material. Overlying the Kennett formation unconformably is the Bragdon formation (Mississippian) , which consists chiefly of black and gray shales, with thin interbedded layers of tuff and sandstone and bands of conglomerate. Above the Bragdon is the Pit shale, of Middle and Upper Triassic age, consisting...
Page 62 - On the lower eastern slope of Jacks Mountain are several old caved-in shafts in the greenstone. The rock brought out is amygdaloidal and massive greenstone highly altered to epidote and quartz. Some amygdules are filled with specular hematite and epidote. Mineralization is indicated by copper stain, but native copper was not observed. No recent work has been done at this place. ORIGIN OF THE ORE. The segregation of the copper in its present form is undoubtedly secondary. The native copper is associated...
