Mesozoic salt of the Scotian Margin is traditionally assigned to the Argo Formation, and its palynological age to the Early Jurassic (Wade and MacLean 1990; Barss et al. 1979). On the Grand Banks, two Mesozoic salt formations are recognized: the Late Triassic Osprey Formation and the Early Jurassic Argo Formation (McAlpine 1990). Besides the age distinction, the Osprey Formation is characterised by low Br content in salt ( 200ppm; Holser et al. 1988).
