Comments part of Trenton Group and Metamorphic Equivalents up to 8000 ft. (2400 m). Unit is also listed as part of part of Eugeosynclinal (Allochthonous) Sequence on printed map and uses a different color to map; however, on the digital map both units of Oag are mapped together. I followed the digital map and did not separate the unit into 2 provinces (the unit descriptions are identical).
