Abstract

It is the aim of this paper to examine the mineralization resulting from the intrusion of acid dikes and veins into the schists of Marlboro township, Vermont, and to give a brief account of the geology of the area.

The problem of mineralization in southern Vermont is one which has been treated very slightly and is one which is deserving of more study than it has received. This problem results from the presence of numerous acid igneous masses in all the formation of the region. Petrographic research in the igneous intrusions was done partially with the hope that the study would reveal minerals of economic importance and partially for the knowledge which the study would yield.
