Long Description:
The veins of black igneous rock found by the shoreline are more than 600 million years old.

Molten lava from the earth's depths seeped into a network of fractures and cracks when the St. Lawrence Valley was formed, becoming diabase rock.

Les filons de roche noire présents a proximité du rivage ont plus de 600 millions d'années. La roche en fusion, provenant des profondeurs de la terre, s'est infiltrée dans un réseau de fractures et de fissures, au moment de la formation de l'actuel vallée du Saint-Laurent.
