Summary:The mineralization occurs at the same stratigraphic level as the Navan and Oldcastle mineralization (see previous abstracts). Both stratiform and cross-cutting mineralization are spatially related to faults and fracture zones. Detailed petrographic studies are presentd, and amplified by photographs. It is concluded that sedimentation, diagenesis, tectonism and mineralization occurred synchronously over an extended period of time. [R.E.]
