Excerpt from Genesis of the Zinc Ores of the Edwards District, St. Lawrence County, N. Y
The area whose general geology underlies the problem is, broadly speaking, the whole Adirondack region, which has been studied by a number Of geologists, during a long period, with the resultant determination Of the major features of its geological history.
More specifically, it is the belt of rocks within which the ore deposits lie, together with the closely adjoining formations, whose history is involved in that of the ores; and the results of the study of these rocks have already been given by Mr Newland. But, as is evident, these rocks can be clearly interpreted only by comparing and correlating them with the formations of the larger region.
The salient facts of the geology of the Edwards district, from the standpoint of the genetic problem, may, to advantage, be repeated in this immediate connection.
