Gravity data for the Dunnage Zone of northeastern Newfoundland are best modeled by a 5- to 10-km-thick layer of high-density rocks (2.8–3.0 g/cm3) underlain by rocks with densities corresponding to continental crust (2.7 g/cm3). This implies that the Dunnage Zone is entirely allochthonous and represents rocks of oceanic affinity thrust onto continental crust.
