Two of the numerous small dikes mapped on the areal geology sheet of the Franklin Furnace Folio (U.S. Geological Survey 161) as “Mostly basic, including nepheline tinguaite, leucite tinguaite, and camptonite” of post‐Ordovician age, have been found to be quite distinct from these alkalic rocks, and the two dikes in question are indistinguishable from the Triassic diabase found elsewhere in New Jersey and adjoining States. The association of diabase with highly alkalic rocks has been observed and commented on by numerous writers. There is evidence pointing to the post‐Triassic age of the Beemerville alkaline rocks, and a possible correlation with a volcanic ash of Cretaceous age found by Stephenson and Carter at Haddonfield, New Jersey, near Camden, in 1936. ©1938.
