The Variscan front is marked by a zone of cataclasis that generally follows an older and larger mylonite zone, but locally cuts across relatively undeformed Precambrian rocks. The older mylonite zone probably developed in Late Precambrian (Avalonian) time. Correlative Precambrian rocks extend across both the Variscan front, and the Bellisle fault to the northwest.
