Structural geology of the Macks Mountain area, Virginia.
This investigation is an attempt to determine the
structure and the nature of deformation of an area between
highly deformed crystalline rocks of the Blue Ridge
structural province and much less deformed sedimentary rocks
of the Valley and Ridge structural province. This interval,
consisting of lower Cambrian and Precambrian rocks, has
been investigated in some detail throughout almost its
entire length in Virginia and Tennessee, with the main
exception of the Macks Mountain area.
The stratigraphy of the area was studied as a basis
for detailed mapping of the structures, and for comparison
with adjoining areas. Bedrock geology of the area was mapped.
