Summary:Five U/Pb age determinations on zircons and 3 Rb/Sr age determinations of some of the late orogenic plutonic bodies from the migmatite and granite zones give ages between 428 and 352 m.y. Together with previously published age determinations, they suggest a main intrusive epoch around 420 m.y. with the last intrusive events as late as 390-350 m.y. Analytical data for six previously published Rb/Sr ages from the region are reassessed and presented in full. [W.S.W.]
