The Mistaken Point and Trepassey formations (Conception and St. John's groups, respectively) comprise a terminal Neoproterozoic, deep-marine succession of fine-grained turbidites and volcanogenic deposits that are part of the Avalonian Terrane. Debris-flow beds, slumped units, the low dispersion of turbidity-current paleoflow directions, and the absence of wave-generated structures together indicate that the sediment was deposited on a deep-water, southeast- facing slope. Channels were not… Expand
