Timing of extension in the Pioneer metamorphic core complex with implications for the spatial-temporal pattern of Cenozoic extension and exhumation in the northern U.S. Cordillera

Vogl, James; Foster, David; Fanning, Christopher; Kent, K. Allen; Rodgers, David W.; Diedesch, Timothy


The Pioneer core complex (PCC) in central Idaho lies along a transition between Early Eocene and ca. 40 Ma core complexes to the north and south, respectively. Thus, the age of extensional development of the PCC is important in understanding the spatial-temporal patterns of core-complex development in the North American Cordillera. New results, including structural observations and U-Pb zircon (SHRIMP and ICPMS) geochronology, constrain the early extensional history of the footwall for the...[Show more]
