The Huronian Cobalt tillite (Gowganda formation) exhibits a preferred dimensional orientation of embedded elongate rock fragments. The orientation is believed to be due to ice motion. Data from four localities show an alignment in about a north-south direction. Data are inadequate to locate center of ice dispersal.
