U-Th-Pb zircon and monazite geochronology of Western Province gneissic rocks, central-south Westland, New Zealand

Hiess, Joe; Rattenbury, M; Ireland, Trevor


Ion-microprobe (Sensitive High Resolution Ion MicroProbe or SHRIMP) zircon and monazite U-Th-Pb geochronology of amphibolite-facies orthogneiss and paragneiss units, mostly from the Fraser and Granite Hill Complexes of Westland, New Zealand, has constrained the ages of protolith rocks and metamorphic overprints. Paragneiss zircon (6 samples, 175 analyses) comprise detrital grains of Paleozoic to Archean age and match patterns from metasedimentary (Ordovician) Greenland Group rocks of the...[Show more]
