In visiting the localities herein described the writer’s purpose was to investigate the general geology of the area as well as to seek a possible recurrence of the manganese deposits found along the shores of Conception and Trinity bays (Dale, 2). Limitation of time, inaccessibility of many of the rock exposures, as well as uncertainty of transportation made it possible only to collect data bearing on the general geology of: Fortune Bay. The object, therefore, in presenting these notes is to have the results of the work recorded.
The writer expresses his grateful acknowledgments to the Department of Geology of Princeton University for its courtesy and assistance in furthering this expedition, and to Dr. B. F. Howell, of the same department, who kindly identified the fossils.
This area includes the tip of Burin Peninsula and that part of the west shore of Fortune Bay lying between . . .
