The cleave is a steep sided valley cut by the River Taw through the metamorphosed mudstones and shales bounding the Dartmoor Granite.
The dark sediments generally form a separate unit from the exploited and heavily mineralised skarns which lie closer to the granite.
This geological unit may be considered to approximate the zone where the road from Belstone village joins the valley floor and Sticklepath village.
1 valid mineral.
This geological map and associated information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This does not necessarily represent the complete geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.
