Resource includes a Bedrock map, Tectonic map, and text on Bedrock geology for the Pawlet Quadrangle, Vermont. For more information see links provided. Abstract: Taconic rocks of the Pawlet quadrangle are tightly folded, faulted and metamorphosed Cambrian and Ordovician argillite, impure argillite, and graywacke sediments. The rocks were deposited, either in a trough on the Champlain shelf, or seaward of the shelf, on the margin of the Magog eugeosyncline. Absence of facies change, in either the marginal Taconic sediments or the Champlain carbonates, is suggestive of a depositional site between the shelf and the eugeosyncline.
