  • The Sandy Narrows study area is comprised of mainly 1.86-1.84 Ga Kisseynew Domain marine metaturbidite rocks which represent the uppermost stratigraphic level in the Reindeer Zone. Based on mineralogical changes from west to east, isograds delineating metamorphic and compositional zones are recognized. Zone 1 consists of andalusite-cordierite-staurolite bearing gneisses. Zone 2, on the eastern side of Zone 1, consists of sillimanite-garnet-cordierite-muscovitebiotite gneisses. Zone 3 rocks… CONTINUE READING
