Sunday June 9/95 - 115a
Arm of Kootznahoo lagoon where signs of [[coal?]] were discovered by prospectors on a reef covered at high water, shales & sandstones mostly higher dipping about 35° NW. The shales very friable with broken fragments of leaves & stems but no good plant remains.  A few specimens (marked 115A) were collected. The thickness of the coarse grained but rather uniform soft sandstones appeared to be several hundred feet, with occasional concretionary nodules of harder & finer material. The strata showed waves in several places with a general NW dip.  The layers showed wave action by crossbedding very distinctly. The shales were variable in hardness usually soft and in thin layers, very friable.
