We will explore the Gun Emplacement and two neighbouring quarries in the Stonyfell Quartzite. Later we will walk alongside the Highbury sand quarry to observe the Maslin Sand Formation, its unconformable contact with the Woolshed Flat Shale, the Eden-Burnside Fault, erosion associated with the quarrying activities and a controversial fault scarp.
Dr Nick Lemon will talk about diapirs: "bubbles" of low density rock, such as salt or over pressured shale, that slowly rise to the surface of a sedimentary basin. They are pushed up by the weight of overlying denser sandstone and carbonate sediments.
