|Name||Tomhegan Formation, Kineo Rhyolite Member, Massive Felsite|
|Original map label||Dtokm|
|Comments||Revised as a member of the Tomhegan formaRevised to include rocks previously mapped as both Heald Mountain Rhyolite and Kineo Volcanic Member of Boucot and Heath (1969). Exposed in Long Pond and Pierce Pond 15-min quads. Consists of weakly metamorphosed rhyolite ash-flow tuff, flows, domes, volcanic breccia, grit, and conglomerate as well as associated hypabyssal, garnet-bearing felsic intrusive rocks. Separately mapped intrusive garnet rhyolite in Tomhegan Formation, previously mapped as both unnamed garnet rhyolite and garnet rhyolite of the Kineo Volcanic Member by Boucot and Heath (1969), is now considered to be equivalent to Kineo. (ME004) W - Weakly metamorphosed; contains local occurrences of prehnite and pumpellyite Protolith T - Rhyolitic volcanic rocks Unit description from USGS GEOLEX website (ME078).|
