The contact between Tertiary Granophyre and Torridonian Arkose on Minishal, Isle of Rhum

  • C. J. Hughes (a1), W. J. Wadsworth (a2) and C. H. Emeleus (a2)

Abstract

Re-examination of the contact between granophyre and arkose on Minishal, Isle of Rhum, shows it to be a tectonic junction in which the effects of crushing and shearing have been largely obscured by contact alteration.
