Author: Crispin J. Prahl
Description:The bedrock geology of the western part of the Lincoln Massif, 6.5 miles northwest of Ripton, Vermont, consists of twelve differentiated rock units, of Middle Proterozoic to Lowest Cambrian age. The region is cored predominantly by massive, weakly foliated Mount Holly quartz-feldspar gneiss. A distinctive feldspar augen gneiss and biotite rich gneiss occur locally and provide excellent control for understanding the structure of the basement.
