"An exhaustive geological and geochemical study is presented of magnetite-chalcopyrite skarn deposits occurring within the thermal aureole of the Nicholas Denys quartz maonzonie-granodiorite stock. The deposits are crudely lenticular and occur in metamorphosed impure limestone and siliceous, in part limy, argillite-greywacke. These are now represented by andradite-epidote-diopside-calcite skarn and cal-silicate to horn-felsic rocks respectively. Both deposits are spatially related to the Main fault of the Rocky Brook-Millstream fault system; late, generally northwest trending transverse faults are conspicuous and are deemed of importance in ore localization" – Abstract, leaf [ii].
