A former limestone/marble quarry.

The typical pegmatite of the Commercial Quarry shows the usual variable grain size, ranging from relatively fine graphic granite up to large individual crystals of feldspar 15 or 20 cm in diameter. The principal minerals, all of which are usually present, are quartz, microcline, and oligoclase or, less commonly, albite. At the north end, pale epidote is present, and locally also axinite, "treanorite" (allanite), prehnite, datolite, zoisite (var. thulite), colourless garnet, zircon, and several zeolites. At the south end, the rather large vertical dike is characterized by 10% to 40% of andradite garnet in crystals 1 - 2 cm in diameter (Woodford et al., 1941).

This quarry was cut to the 910-foot level circa 1940 to 1954.

Regional Geology

This geological map and associated 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 does not necessarily represent the complete geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.

Holocene
0 - 0.0117 Ma



ID: 2245371
Artificial fill

Age: Anthropocene (0 - 0.0117 Ma)

Description: Sand, gravel, and bedrock from pits, quarries, and excavations related to construction, mining, or quarrying activities; mapped primarily where materials are placed for construction of highways, canals, railway grades, dams, and water catchment basins. Only large features are mapped; not shown in some places where unit obscures detailed surficial or bedrock relations. Differs from disturbed ground (Qdg) in that generally large amounts of rock and (or) sediment have been imported to site
