page 141:-  "The deposit at Salter Hall, near Frizington, is a typical one, it is on the line of a north and south vein, having a downthrow to the east of 100 fathoms, or upwards. There are deposits of ore on both the eastern and western side of the vein, some being merely flats and others more massive. The largest as shown by the section is narrow for some distance down, it then widens considerably, the foot-wall for nearly one-third of the depth of the section is Skiddaw Slate."
