hi
have you tried combining the two pieces of geometry then trying to merge the verts? or have you tried going into the merge verts options and increasing the distance. or maybe the normals are facing the wrong way if thats the caSe select the faces and go into EDIT POLYGON>NORMALS>REVERSE then try to merge the verts,

hope that helps
