The red colouration of the pre-Sokoman Chakonipau Formation is clearly due to oxidation, as Dimroth recognizes. He, however, considers that alteration to have followed on the heels of sedimentation. In response to this I have asked elsewhere (Cloud, 1976a,b) whether this secondary oxidation might not reflect one of the known much younger episodes of deep subaerial oxidation that affected large parts of the Canadian Shield during the Proterozoic to Phanerozoic and Cretaveous time. Well-placed borings might resolve this issue, which I am less disposed to contest than formerly for reasons given below.
