Abstract

The Rocknest Formation is an early Proterozoic (1.9 b.y.) westward-facing, rimmed carbonate shelf that evolved from a ramp developed on quartzites of the underlying Odjick Formation. Shelf interior facies are cyclic peritidal dolomites; shelf edge facies are reefal stromatolitic boundstones and intraclast/ooid grainstones, and slope facies are turbidites, slope breccias, and shelf edge breccias. The carbonates are overlain by black shales and graywackes of the Recluse Group.
