Abstract. The Fleur de Lys Belt (Hibbard, a) comprises predominantly polyphase deformed metamorphosed clastic rocks. The belt is named after one of its major constituents, the Fleur de Lys Supergroup and defines a buffer zone between two major tectonostratigraphic zones in the Newfoundland by: 7. The stratigraphy, geologic setting, and history of the lower Paleozoic rocks and the presence of oil shows in wells, seeps, and bitumin throughout the area mark western Newfoundland as a potential hydrocarbon basin similar to other lower Paleozoic examples dolomite reservoirs are common in the autochthon and occur locally in the allochthon.
