|Original map label||Oa|
|Comments||Part of Eastern Vermont U-Pb zircon ages suggest that the Ammonoosuc Volcanics and tuffs of the Partridge Formation were erupted 453 to 449 Ma meaning they are of late Middle Ordovician and earliest Late Ordovician age. The stratigraphic relationships of these two units is very complex with current thought being that the Partridge lies between the lower and upper members of the Ammonoosuc Volcanics per VT010.|
