Regional Geology

This geological map and associated information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This does not necessarily represent the complete geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.

Devonian - Silurian
358.9 - 443.8 Ma

ID: 3186140
Paleozoic sedimentary and volcanic rocks

Age: Paleozoic (358.9 - 443.8 Ma)

Lithology: Mudstone-carbonate-sandstone-conglomerate

Reference: Chorlton, L.B. Generalized geology of the world: bedrock domains and major faults in GIS format: a small-scale world geology map with an extended geological attribute database. doi: 10.4095/223767. Geological Survey of Canada, Open File 5529. [154]

Silurian - Ordovician
419.2 - 485.4 Ma

ID: 3018366
Merrimack Group, Berwick Formation, Unnamed member

Age: Paleozoic (419.2 - 485.4 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Berwick Formation

Description: Contains more calc-silicate (15 percent) than does the remainder of the formation (5 percent).

Comments: Part of the Nashoba-Casco-Miramichi Terrane (Merrimack Trough). Secondary unit description from USGS Geologic Names lexicon (ref. NH047): Used as Berwick Formation of Merrimack Group. Consists of purple biotite-feldspar granofels or schist. Contains interbeds of calcsilicate granofels and minor metapelites. Includes Gove Member, mapped separately. Stratigraphic sequence with respect to Eliot Formation is uncertain. Age of all formations in Merrimack Group changed to Ordovician(?) to Silurian(?) based on isotopic age determinations of approx 440 and 420 Ma from detrital zircons from Berwick by J.N. Aleinikoff (oral commun., 1994). Onway tholeiite dike (point within formation) = 177 K/Ar, whole rock per NH042.
