Devonian Extension in Northwestern Newfoundland: 40Ar/39Ar and U-Pb Data from the Ming's Bight Area, Baie Verte Peninsula The Journal of Geology, 2001, volume 109, p. 191-211.

1. The Ming's Bight Group is separated from overlying ophiolitic and granitoid rocks by ductile and brittle-ductile shear zones. Evidence for early sinistral-reverse movement is locally preserved, but the dominant structures record two stages of dextral oblique-normal displacement.
2. 40Ar/39Ar data from hornblende and muscovite, and U-Pb data from titanite and rutile, record mid-Devonian to Early Carboniferous growth and cooling ages."
