The general geology of the area is described; three main geological units are recognized: 1. Amphibolite Complex, 2. Quartzite Group, 3. Psammitic Schist. The metamorphism of the amphibolite is discussed; it is low-grade, of Albite-Epidote-Amphibolite facies. An occurrence of an unusual scapolite-bearing limestone is described. An attempt is made to classify the minor structures of the area and to deduce the structural and geological history.
