Nine bedrock and two till samples were analyzed to determine whether their chemical and physical properties could be used to distinguish between bedrock units and to differentiate local bedrock from overlying tills. The bedrock samples came from The North Cliff subsite of the Wellsch Valley Site, and the till samples from Jaw Face subsite. Eight of the nine bedrock samples show great similarity. However, their geochemical differences from the overlying Quaternary tills establish that the tills contain much material entrained, during one or more early Quaternary glaciations, from older bedrock outcrops to the north and northeast. The glaciers that laid down the tills appear to have reworked and concentrated elements compatible with a dry climate, probably formed by weathering during long interglacial, and perhaps preglacial, intervals when the surface was undergoing slow degradation.
