White micas from the Penninic units of the Urtier Valley, in the Western Alps, have been dated by the 40Ar/39Ar step-heating method. A strong correlation is observed between measured ages, mica composition and deformation fabrics. Samples characterized by a single mineral reservoir yielded relatively flat age spectra, allowing to estimate an age of 44.4 ± 0.4 Ma for the formation of phengite-bearing fabrics in eclogite facies conditions (SHP) and an age of 42.0 ± 0.4 Ma for the...[Show more]
