Geology for Engineers MINE2200 Assignment 1 3 Naturally Formed Rock Example 1: (a) (b) (c) (d) Figure (a) shows the rock sample made from slate (metamorphic rock) which showing its fine grained and foliated texture. It was found in the south end of Halifax at the NE corner of Robie Street and Roxton Road. Marker for scale is 15 cm across. Figure (c) showing a low-grade metamorphosed shale which is composed of flakes of clay and the foliation revealed by slate tendency. Figure (d) showing the rough sketch indicating the fine-grained foliated texture of the slate rock. The civic address of the location is 918 Robie Street, Halifax, NS B3H 3C4, CA.
