Abstract

K–Ar ages are reported for 19 samples collected from the Hedley, Okanagan, and Similkameen Complexes located in the vicinity of Hedley, British Columbia. Although the zoned nature of amphiboles collected from the Hedley Complex makes interpretation of their radiometric ages difficult, it is suggested that the Hedley Complex was intruded at least 165 m.y. ago and was a part of the same magmatic activity that gave rise to both the Okanagan and Similkameen batholithic complexes. These latter complexes yield ages ranging from 141 m.y. to 184 m.y.
