The regional significance of Cretaceous magmatism and metamorphism in Fiordland, New Zealand, from U-Pb zircon geochronology

Hollis, Julie A; Clarke, G L; Klepeis, K; Daczko, N.; Ireland, Trevor


The western Fiordland Orthogneiss (WFO) is an extensive composite metagabbroic to dioritic arc batholith that was emplaced at c. 20-25 km crustal depth into Palaeozoic and Mesozoic gneiss during collision and accretion of the arc with the Mesozoic Pacific Gondwana margin. Sensitive high-resolution ion microprobe U-Pb zircon data from central and northern Fiordland indicate that WFO plutons were emplaced throughout the early Cretaceous (123.6 ± 3.0, 121.8 ± 1.7, 120.0 ± 2.6 and 115.6 ± 2.4 Ma)....[Show more]
