Stabilization and reactivation of cratonic lithosphere from the lower crustal record in the western Canadian shield

Flowers, R M; Bowring, Samuel A; Mahan, K H; Williams, M L; Williams, Ian


New U-Pb geochronology for an extensive exposure of high-pressure granulites in the East Lake Athabasca region of the western Canadian shield is consistent with a history characterized by 2.55 Ga stabilization of cratonic lithosphere, 650 million years of lower crustal residence and cratonic stability, and 1.9 Ga reactivation of the craton during lithospheric attenuation and asthenospheric upwelling. High precision single-grain and fragment zircon data define distinctive discordia arrays...[Show more]
