Background Walton and deWaard, basement hypothesis, 1962, now discredited. Turner - Field assistant to Walton, 1962. Walton recognized Skiff Mtn has complex structure. Assigned me to 6 weeks mapping at 1:10,000. Mapping was field checked by Walton.

Some rocks have pyroxene, so called charnockite by Walton I now disagree with that identification. Turner Skiff Mountain Tectonic Unit Description of Rock Types in Skiff Mtn Layered granite gneisses, mappable*. Low Ti-magnetite ore bodies (3 mines, several pits).

Pervasive partial melting and anatexis; paragneisses locally grade into granite gneiss. Pervasive retrograde metamorphism, hydrous minerals as alteration products of primary anhydrous minerals (sericite, uralite, chlorite). Many thin metagabbro sills, mappable. Feldspars changed by local metasomatism

replacement textures in many rocks, see isochrons. Similar to Lyon Mtn gneiss of Whitney and Olmsted Turner Skiff Mountain Tectonic Unit Turner Skiff Mountain Tectonic Unit Leucosome and migmatite,

Pole for lineation great circle for reference N.B. 90 degree intersections Turner Skiff Mountain Tectonic Unit Discussion of Structure All pi-poles, thus presumably fold axes, plunge at much

steeper angles than an entire terrane just 2 km to the south where late F-2 folds predominate. Major E-W trending belts of marble lay just N and S of Skiff Mtn. Structural fabric of the area around Skiff is different from the structural fabric to the south and southwest. All granite bodies near Skiff Mtn plunge to the E.

Are these granite bodies allochthonous or synformal? Are the refolded isoclines refolded F-1 folds? Turner Skiff Mountain Tectonic Unit Turner Skiff Mountain Tectonic Unit The Revised Essence of Skiff Mountain

Turner Skiff Mountain Tectonic Unit Evolving Concepts: Should the essence of Skiff Mtn be detached? Should the essence be inverted? Should it be bounded underneath by a thrust plane/ductile shear?

Turner Skiff Mountain Tectonic Unit Conclusions: A Shawinigan original age of host gneisses is indicated by: Paragneiss (ca. 1200 Ma) with leucosome grading into granitic gneiss. Mappable layers of granitic gneiss (layered prehistory).

Refolded F-1 isoclines within the gneissic body. Isoclinal interfolding of gneisses with metasedimentary rocks. Fold axes totally different than F-2 and F-3 axes elsewhere in region. Not incompatible with Whitney and Olmsted vision of a layered metavolcanic sequence above other metasedimentary rocks. Magnetite ore introduced later with alteration of host rock and alkali metal metasomatism, ca. 950 Ma?
