Fission track, K–Ar, and Rb–Sr mineral dates for the Ecstall and Quottoon plutons were determined to resolve the different cooling histories indicated by Rb–Sr whole-rock and mineral isochrons and published K–Ar dates.Comparison of mineral dates with previously assigned closure temperatures for the various isotopic chronometers has allowed temperature–time plots for the thermal history of individual samples and sample suites to be constructed.The Quottoon pluton, emplaced approximately 51 Ma… CONTINUE READING
