Lithic clasts in boulder, cobble, pebble, and granule conglomerates of the proximal Daggett Ridge Formation were derived from Late Cambrian through Early Ordovician sedimentary and volcanic rocks of the Miramichi terrane and are also present locally in dark grey to pebble conglomerate and lithic sandstone of the Mill Privilege Brook Formation (along with black pyritiferous
The rock [matrix] is a crystalline limestone, with layers of black pyritiferous
At the famous Muzo mines, the emeralds reside in deep veins of calcite, which crisscross Lower Cretaceous argillites and layers of black, pyritiferous
This package is overlain to the east by additional Tetagouche Group rocks including pyritiferous

Cross-laminated, fine- to medium-grained, poorly sorted, pyritiferous
metasandstone beds, up to 30 cm thick, are locally present (Fig.
On Campobello Island it consists of locally pyritiferous

Black shale beds, which are less common in the section, are highly carbonaceous and pyritiferous
