445.2 - 453 Ma



ID: 2841743
Partridge Formation (includes Brimfield Schist of Emerson, 1917)

Age: Late Ordovician (445.2 - 453 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Partridge Formation

Description: Sulfidic mica schist and subordinate amphibolite.

Comments: Part of Bronson Hill Zone (Ordovician and Older Rocks). U-Pb zircon ages suggest that the Ammonoosuc Volcanics and tuffs of the Partridge Formation were erupted between 453 to 449 Ma, meaning they are of late Middle Ordovician and earliest Late Ordovician age. The stratigraphic relationships of these two units is very complex with current thought being that the Partridge lies between the lower and upper members of the Ammonoosuc Volcanics (Tucker and Robinson, 1990) per MA015. Original map source: Unpublished Digital Geologic Map of Massachusetts received from Rudi Hon of Boston College in 1998; based on the 1983 USGS paper version (MA002).
