An iron mine in magnetite ore located 5 miles North of the old Greenwood Furnace (no longer on maps) & southeast of Arden in Tuxedo. One of the Greenwood group of mines. Host rock is hornblende gneiss.
13 valid minerals. 1 (TL) - type locality of valid minerals.
This information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This data will improve over time as more accurate maps and data sets are added.

Metamorphic and undivided crystalline: orthogneiss
|Mesoproterozoic1000 - 1600 Ma||Mesoproterozoic intrusive and metamorphic terranes|
Intrusive and metamorphic terranes
Mixtures of metamorphic and intrusive or plutonic rocks, tracts known as crystalline, migmatitic terranes, moderately to highly metamorphosed rocks of unknown origin with or without intrusions. This classification is inherently prone to variable interpretation, as other compilers might distinguish some packages by their metamorphic or gneissic protoliths, and the associated age ranges may be more variable.
|Mesoproterozoic1000 - 1600 Ma||Interlayered amphibolite and granitic, charnockitic, mangeritic, or syenitic gneiss|
