Division of Mineral Resources.]. The Albemarle Group is a geologic group in North Carolina composed of metamorphosed mafic and felsic volcanic rock, sandstone, siltstone, shale, and mudstone.
It is considered part of the Carolina Slate Belt and covers several counties in central North Carolina. It preserves fossils dating back to the Ediacaran period in the Floyd Church y: United States.

STRATIGRAPHY In south-central North Carolina, the Carolina slate belt in cludes four generally recognized units (Figure 2).
The oldest unit is the Uwharrie Formation, which is composed of 4, meters of felsic volcanoclastic rocks (Stromquist and Sundelius, ). James Robert Butler, "Volcaniclastic Rocks of the Carolina Slate Belt, Central North Carolina", Southeastern United States: Third Annual Midyear Meeting,Raleigh, North Carolina.
The volcanosedimentary sequence of the Carolina slate belt in south-central North Carolina was long thought to be unfossiliferous; however, the meters of dominantly evenly bedded. Abstract Geologic mapping in south-central Virginia demonstrates that the stratigraphy and structure of the Carolina slate belt extend northward across a steep thermal gradient into upper.
The unit is estimated to be 6, feet thick. It is very likely correlative with the volcanic rocks beneath the Arvonia Slate in central Virginia and with the James Run Gneiss and volcanic complex of Cecil County, Md.
It may also be correlative with parts of the sedimentary and volcanic sequence of the Carolina slate belt. 2. Geological overview of the central North Carolina slate belt.
Our study area is the portion of the Carolina slate belt near Albemarle in central North area is characterized by gently folded greenschist facies volcanic, volcaniclastic and plutonic rocks that range from basaltic to rhyolitic in composition.

The Carolina Slate Belt consists mostly of rocks originally deposited on or near the earth’s surface by volcanic eruption and sedimentation (North. The Cid Formation is a metavolcanic rock and mudstone geologic formation in North consists of a lower unnamed mudstone member with intermittent volcanic flows and the Flat Swamp Member, which is characterized by pyroclastic flows.
It preserves. Pyrophyllite and talc - Pyrophyllite is a high alumina mineral that, in North Carolina, occurs exclusively within hydrothermally altered felsic volcanic rocks of the Carolina Slate belt.
The mineral was first mined commercially in North Carolina in and has been mined almost continuously since that time. BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF CAROLINA SLATE BELT STRATIGRAPHIC UNITS, ALBEMARLE AREA Although the complex of volcanic, volcanoclastic, and volcanosedimentary rocks of the Carolina slate belt in south-central North Carolina are reasonably well exposed, subtle vertical and lateral facies changes are not everywhere easily recognizable.
To celebrate its fiftieth anniversary, the Carolina Geological Society invited forty-three authors to contribute to the creation of The Geology of the Carolinas. The only comprehensive, modern treatment of the subject, the volume has been prepared for a diverse readership ranging from undergraduate students to specialists in the fields of geology and related earth sciences.
The Albemarle Group is one of the major deﬁning stratigraphic units of the Carolina terrane, the best-known division of the southern Appalachian peri-Gondwanan block of Carolinia. As such, the group is a signiﬁcant factor in the correlation of Carolinia with other peri-Gondwanan blocks both in the Appalachians and globally.
