Summary:

The Lost Mountain Amphibolite Member of the Univeter Formation of the New Georgia Group is here named in northwest GA. It forms two limbs of a fold traceable for 80 mi in the Univeter and encloses the Rose Creek Church Schist Member of the Univeter. It consists of hornblende-plagioclase amphibolite, hornblende gneiss, and local layers of banded iron formation. Age is Late Proterozoic and (or) early Paleozoic.
