U-Pb geochronology and evolution of Mesoproterozoic basement rocks, western Connecticut
Geologic mapping and U-Pb geochronology by ion microprobe on zircon, titanite, and monazite in the New Milford quadrangle, western Connecticut indicate Mesoproterozoic events at ca. 1.3, 1.05, and 0.99 Ga in the Laurentian basement rocks. Pink granite gneiss (1311 ± 7 Ma) intruded a paragneiss sequence during the early stages of the Elzevirian orogeny. During the Ottawan orogeny, syn-tectonic anatexis produced a belt of stromatic migmatite at 1057 ± 10 Ma. Ottawan igneous activity included...[Show more]
