It Is said that these Katoka lavas.
In consolidating, created a system of
shrinkage cracks, with occasloual long
lines of "faulting," or fractures,
which constituted planes of weakness
that materially facilitated the eronlve
action of the river.
If this theory la correct, It la pos
sible that the Assure Into which th
river plunges at the fulls Is due to a
fault-plane, where a vertical belt of
comparatively soft material breaks the
continuity of the harder basalt, and
this belt or vein, connecting with
others of the same or similar -charac
ter, haa been washed out or excavated
by the undermining action of the river.
