|Geologic age||Silurian and Ordovician|
|Original map label||SOh|
|Comments||Part of Eastern Uplands; Iapetus (Oceanic) Terrane - Merrimack Synclinorium; Hebron Gneiss and equivalent formations (including equivalents of Paxton and Oakdale Formations of Massachusetts) (including Bigelow Brook and Southbridge Formations) (Silurian and Ordovician). The Hebron Formation is here restricted to rocks in the area south and west of the Willimantic dome, south of the Wangumbaug Lake fault, and west of a fault in the Fitchville quad delineated by the Lebanon Gabbro. It includes the type area of the Hebron. Other rocks formerly mapped as Hebron are here assigned to the Oakdale, Dudley, and Southbridge Formations. It is separated from all other stratigraphic units by fault or intrusive contacts across which no stratigraphy can be correlated. Age is Late Proterozoic(?) based on correlation with part of the Paxton Group (Pease, 1989) per CT013.|
