Drill-Hole Correlation as an Aid in Exploration of Magnetite Deposits of the Jersey Highlands, New York and New Jersey
Detailed studies of diamond drill cores from four magnetite deposits in the pre-Cambrian gneisses of the Jersey Highlands, New York and New Jersey, show that the gneisses adjoining the ore-bearing zones comprise pseudostratigraphic units of differing composition. These units are recognized in field examination of drill cores by (1) the relative proportion of dark to light minerals and (2) the presence of indicative mineral species as a basis for setting up characteristic units. The logging...
