It may also be said that the ore shoots were well defined, and the intervening vein matter barren and unworkable. The pitch of the ore shoots conforms to the usual habit, dipping to the right when looking down the dip of the vein. The ores consist of sulphides and...

Сторінка 104 - Weed," who says: In addition to the pneumatolitic deposite on igneous contacts and those in altered strata near the contacts there are many productive mines working true veins cutting the igneous rock and the contact rocks above them. Such vein fissures are caused both by the contraction due to the crystallization and cooling of the igneous rock and by the shrinkage of the metamorphic zone above the igneous rock. Examples of this type have already been mentioned. As shown by Pirsson...
Сторінка 105 - MINE. In Bulletin No. 213 of the US Geological Survey, WH Weed gives a good description of the Drumlummon vein, from which the following quotation is made : "It is a fault plane with white opaque quartz inclosing angular fragments of black, green and drab slates, which are sometimes distinct and unaltered and at others have been much decomposed.
