Hi awesome photo, i have seen a lot of your stuff in the Rideau Lakes area and it's amazing. I'm am a geologist in the area, this renown outcrop is actually composed of the horizontal sandstone and conglomerate layers of the Neapean & Covey Hill Formation ~ 500ma. The dipping units under the angular unconformity are some of the 1000 Ma Grenville Gneiss's apart of the Frontenac Arch. The line (angular unconformity) that separates these two rock units represents about 500 ma of erosion. This is the time it took the Grenville Mountains to eroded before the sandstones were deposited on top. The younger Limestones (Blackriver Group) you mention are found just to the south in Kingston (Limestone City) but do not make it as far north as Elgin, only to about Joyceville. Cheers, awesome snap
Steve, I have a ton of research on the Wilbur Mine that may interest you. You can contact me through dualsportdiary.blogspot.com if you'd like to learn more.
Keep it up.
Can you shed any light on the origin of the bricks? Locally made or imported?
Excellent shot ! Beautiful picture !!! , YSL: 3/3

Welcome to "neighborhood" - very well captured! Cheers
Thanks very much Steve, my mistake.
What is your name? Call me at 542-1054. I will be in your area later this week searching the tramways.
Hi again Steve - great picture of the old Howes Store. My mother grew up here and I spent many summers running around the grounds and catching tadpoles in the creek. I am so happy the new owner is keeping the place up.
