We report results of heavy mineral analysis and U-Pb dating of detrital zircons from metasediments and Cenozoic sandstones, and U-Pb dating of zircons from Cenozoic granites of the North Palawan Continental Terrane (NPCT) and the South Palawan Terrane (SPT). The NPCT metasediments are derived mainly from granitic and metamorphic rocks of continental character. They contain zircons that indicate a maximum depositional age of Late Cretaceous and other age populations indicating a South China...[Show more]
