Comments Part of Nashoba Zone (Silurian and Older Rocks). The age of the Putnam Group, including its Tatnic Hill Formation, is considered to be Late Proterozoic(?) based on the 730 my age of the Fishbrook Gneiss in MA and the 440 my age of the Hedgehog Hill gneiss intruded into the upper part of the younger Brimfield Group (Pease, 1989) per MA009.
