[William J Gregg; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. CENTRAL AND EASTERN MINNESOTA, AND ACCOMPANYING TEXT By D.L. Southwick, G.B. Morey, and Peter L. McSwiggen ABSTRACT The geology of the Animikie basin and contiguous rocks of Early Proterozoic age in central and eastern Minnesota (collectively constituting the western end of the Penokean orogen) is reinterpreted in terms of. b cd / southwick, d. l., / tectonic imbrication and foredeep development in the penokean orogen, east-central minnesota – an interpretation based on regional geophysics and the results of test-drilling the penokean orogeny in minnesota and upper michigan – a comparison of structural geology, , pb, 10 pages, 9 figs., $ 5. The evolution of the basin can be divided into an extensional stage with attendant deposition of stratified rocks, and a subsequent compressional stage assigned to the Penokean orogeny. The lower Proterozoic stratified rocks in the Animikie basin in Minnesota can be divided into two zones on the basis of pronounced differences in facies and.
