State Maine
Name Devonian - Silurian undifferentiated sedimentary rocks in areas of extreme migmatization
Geologic age Devonian - Silurian
Lithologic constituents
Major
Metamorphic > Migmatite (Amphibolite)AC - High rank amphibolite facies; Protolith Q - Interbedded pelite and sandstone
Comments Probably named for Madrid, ME. Consists of calcareous quartzite with lime-silicate minerals in middle-grade metamorphic zones. Contains minor amounts of argillaceous rocks and calcareous beds. Sulfides absent or inconspicuous. Quartzite grades upward into Dyer Hill member (new). Age is younger than Parmachenee formation (new). (ME031) Unit description from USGS GEOLEX website (ME078). AA - Low rank amphibolite facies; Protolith M - Calcareous sandstone; interbedded sandstone and impure limestone.
