10010: Portion of detailed geologic map of the Creedmoor quadrangle (Clark et al., 2002) and data from the Bayleaf quadrangle (Horton et al., 1992).  Virtual Field Trip stop 10010 is located in the CZfs unit of Clark et al. (2002).

 
Unit description: CZfs- Falls Lake schist: Silvery-gray to black, fine- to medium-grained, well foliated, white mica ± biotite ± garnet ± chlorite schist to gneiss.
Note: 

The generalized geologic map figure, drafted using the 1985 Geologic Map of NC (NCGS, 1985), places location 10010 within the Beaverdam diorite-gabbro complex.  The generalized geologic map was based on reconnaissance level mapping.  Subsequent detailed mapping by Clark et al. (2002), indicated that the location is underlain by schist assigned to the Falls Lake schist unit.
