Abstract

Mapping in the McGregor Bay area of Ontario has shown the presence of a sequence of formations which closely resembles that of the original Huronian of the Bruce Mines–Blind River area. Iron-rich siltstones and argillites above the Lorrain formation are correlated with the lower part of the Animikie iron-formations of the Port Arthur region of Lake Superior and the north central United States. The oldest Proterozoic rocks of the region south of Lake Superior are considered to be correlatives of the Cobalt group of the north shore of Lake Huron.
