Description:The Ascutney Mountain Intrusive Complex is one of three complexes in Vermont that belong to the White Mountain Magma Series. Occurring in southeastern Vermont, the complex intrudes Precambrian core rocks and mantling strata of the Chester Dome; it is adjacent to the Monroe line, a major boundary between two Acadian metamorphic terranes. The complex consists of Cretaceous (120 million years) gabbrodiorite, syenite and granite stocks and a prominent crescentshaped syenite ring dike.
