This is a new site. The site is listed in the Geological Conservation Review.
Description and Reasons for Notification:
St George’s Cove and Harbour Cove constitutes the type locality of the Harbour Cove Slates (Frasnian). Their included marine fauna is sparse but certain horizons have yielded a rich goniatite fauna, indicating the cordatum Zone. This site is important in interpreting the local stratigraphic sequences as the type locality of the Harbour Cove Slates, and for yielding a firm Frasnian date for this unit.
