This study provides new constraints on fast cooling and exhumation rates of high-pressure metamorphic rocks in young active mountain belts. Ion microprobe (SHRIMP) U-Pb analysis of zircon in a pyroxenite layer of the Cerro del Almirez ultramafic rocks (Nevado-Filábride Complex, southern Spain) gave an age of 15.0 ± 0.6 Myr (95% c.l.). Mineral inclusions demonstrate that zircon formed close to the high-pressure peak. Combined with previous fission track data, the 15 Myr age suggests high cooling...[Show more]
