The Carolina Slate Belt is unusual in providing intriguing problems to workers of igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic terrains. The rocks in the Union County portion of the Slate Belt are particularly challenging and regionally important because sedimentary characteristics are usually well preserved in spite of the low rank metamorphism. The purpose of this investigation is the detailed lithologic and stratigraphic study necessary to reconstruct the geologic history of the region. Includes one plate. By Anthony F. Randazzo, 1972. 38 pages.
