by Brant Gaetz, Memorial University of Newfoundland, St John's, Canada
Tithonian aged alkaline intrusives (lamprophyres & pyroxenites) cross-cutting Ordovician aged accreted terrane lithologies, northern-central coast of Newfoundland: suite referred to by previous authors as the Notre Dame Bay Magmatic Province (NDBMP) and mark a significant rift phase in the opening of the North Atlantic.
