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. g. Cloud, 1976b).

This carbon is, in fact, amply represented. Not only is there abundant real carbon in black shales at the centres of contemporary basins (up to 12% at places). In addition a substantial quantity of carbon was probably also returned to circulation as COz released by the reduction of hematite to magnetite during diagenesis of the BIF -6Fe2o3 + C--+ 4Fe 3o4 + C0 2 • Hydrodynamically we should not expect to find carbon equivalent to all or even a large part of the BIF at exactly the same depositional sites with it.
