Zircon U-Pb ages from glacial clasts in Quaternary tills of the central Transantarctic Mountains indicate the presence of Grenville-age crust along the Ross Sea margin of East Antarctica. The polymict tills contain a variety of igneous, metaigneous, and metasedimentary clasts with Proterozoic ages not known from basement exposure. Four orthogneiss clasts have igneous ages of ∼1065-1100 Ma and Ross Orogen metamorphic overgrowths of ∼500-550 Ma. The latter ages indicate that these clasts are not...[Show more]
