Capsule Geology

Granite of the Cretaceous Baldy batholith intrudes Devonian Eagle Bay metasediments consisting of mica schists, quartzites, argillites and slates. Graphite occurs within the metasediments. Two steeply dipping (45 to 65 degrees) sections of graphite were interested by drilling. One was from 42 to 49 metres and the other from 73 to 77 metres. The graphite, as determined by X-ray diffraction, is crystalline, flake variety and returned values from 2.50 to 4.62 per cent graphite (Assessment Report 22834).
