Granite pegmatite. Feldspar quarry first opened in 1916. Later, Kenneth K. Landes, then a Harvard University student, based his research both on this quarry and the Noyes Mountain (Harvard) Quarry in Greenwood and his dissertation revolutionized ideas about how pegmatites crystallize. Landes' paper was "Paragenesis of the Granitic Pegmatites of Central Maine", (American Mineralogist, 1925, v. 10, p. 355-411). Oxford pegmatite field.

Silurian Sangerville Formation, Anasagunticook member

Age: Llandovery (433.4 - 443.8 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Anasagunticook Member

Description: Silurian Sangerville Formation Anasagunticook member

Comments: In western sequence of central Maine trough, divided into a main body, lower member near Woodstock (schist and granofels probably equivalent to member B), upper member near Woodstock (schist and granofels probably equivalent to member C), member A (in turn divided into gray shale and massive sandstone facies, massive sandstone facies, and polymict conglomerate facies), member B (in turn divided into quartz-rich, polymictic conglomerate facies and gray shale and sandstone facies), and member C (in turn divided into quartz conglomerate, sandstone, and gray shale; impure limestone and quartz conglomerate lenses; and upper gray shale and sandstone). (ME004) Unit description from USGS GEOLEX website (ME078). E - Epidote-amphibolite facies; AA - Low rank amphibolite facies; AB - Medium rank amphibolite facies; Protolith H - Lithic sandstone and conglomerate.
