Apatite fission-track ages for weakly altered rocks from the Syenite Range and Burwash Landing area of the Yukon Territory, and Cassiar area of British Columbia are shown to be consistent and generally concordant with K–Ar ages obtained on biotite from the same samples. More intensely altered rocks from Granisle Mine and the Copper Mountain area of British Columbia have discordant ages, due in part to alteration of apatite grains and, for samples from the Copper Mountain intrusions, to a Cretaceous (?) thermal event.
