Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 30 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, September 26, 1974 Ask Andy sends i complete 20- set ot the Ment Mudents Encyclopedia to Mickev Maiguhes age 12 ot Chiton Heights. Fa for his question What exacth is slate' At one time school children used thin slabs ot flat gre> slate instead ol notebooks Novvadavs this interesting rock material mav be used to tile patios and floors and sometimes roofs are tiled with slate The storv of slate is interesting because it goes through several stages of remodeling in the earth s crust Slate is a hard rock} mineral of the earth s crust and the storv of its formation goes back through many millions ot years Most ot our Mate quarries are along the eastern shores Their stories are linked to the formation of the mighty Appalachian mountains Some 300 million vears ago this region was submerged bv shallow seas where muds drained down from the slopes Through the ages fine par tides of various minerals deposited soggy layers below the water At last the eastern side of the continent became involved in a stupendous era ot mountain making First the northern arm of Ap- palachians arose in the New England region After 50 million years or so, the southern arm of Appalachians arose and the mountain barriers permanently shut out the Atlantic Meantime the muddv deposits that formed along the former shores became involv ed in this dramatic chapter of mountain-making As the land rose thev were lifted above the water and became dry lavers ot limestone sandstone and shale Mineral layers of this sort are called sedimen- tary rocks because they were deposited as watery sediments Volcanos erupted added masses of granite and other igneous fire-formed rocks to the growing rnoun lams During the long upheaval some of the original sedimen- and igneous rocks were remodeled completely of lump} limestone were reprocessed into deposits of waxy marble And some of the shales were changed into slates Minerals that have been through dramatic changes of this sort are called metamorphic rocks And slate is a metamorphic form of shale In most mc'tamoiphic rocks the- tianstoimation is bi ought about heat and pressuie In slate the main toite is piessuie with little heat Its small paiticles im lude quartz and mica feld- spar and magnetite Its stieakv gievs and blacks are added bv graphite processed liomcaibon Its reds are iron oxides its greens are added b} a mineral called chlorite Uutmg the slow pressing process all the air and moisture in the original shale are squeezed out and the par- ticles are crushed flatter than tlat This is why slate tends to cleave or split into lavers like tlat rockv pages When the original sediments were deposited different minerals formed colored lavers During the metamorphic process these were changed IP the finished slate the original colors form streaks across not between the rockv pages If the streaks in a slab ot hard grey slate are dark graphite or light calcite chances are it is too fragile tor use as a durable tile material Questions asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
