We present a newly compiled geologic map of the Pine Mountain window based on available 1:24,000 (and smaller) scale geologic maps; this map provides an improved basis to reconcile long-standing issues regarding tectonic evolution. We integrate sensitive high-resolution ion microprobe (SHRIMP) single-grain U-Pb ages of igneous, metamorphic, and detrital zircons from Grenville basement rocks, associated metasedimentary units, and cover rocks to help clarify the pre-Appalachian history and to better delimit the distribution of Laurentian versus peri-Gondwanan and Gondwanan units along the southeast flank of the window. U-Pb results indicate that some units, which earlier had been correlated with Neoproterozoic to...
