Abstract

Precambrian microfossils discovered in nonferruginous charts of the lower "algal" members of the Gunflint formation of southern Ontario are of great interest in the evolutionary scheme of primitive life. The environment of deposition of the deposit, and the indigenous and biogenic nature of the microfossil assemblage are considered. A discussion of the small but diversified assemblage, including twelve micro-forms, seven of which have not previously been reported, is presented.
