... Within the southern and central Appalachians, Grenville-age basement rocks are found in major massifs in the Blue Ridge and Sauratown Mountains anticlinoria and in the vicinity of the Grandfather Mountain window. These massifs are, respectively, Pedlar and Lovingston Massifs in the Blue Ridge...

... lithologic associations between the Pedlar massif with its metavolcanic cover and the Lovingston massif. Within areas of high rainfall and high chute density, secondary factors affect the susceptibility of individual rock units and chute orientations within those rock units. Units that have high...

... Along a transect across the central Virginia Blue Ridge complex, the terrane is divisible into two discrete massifs—the Pedlar and the Lovingston, which are separated by the mid-Paleozoic Rockfish Valley fault. The Pedlar Massif is characterized by two major lithologies—an older volcanic...

.... The Rockfish Valley deformation zone crosses the district from northeast to southwest. Northwest of the deformation zone are ferrodioritic charnockitic rocks of the Pedlar massif, which are slightly older than the Roses Mill Pluton. These ages may have been modified by metamorphism. The Mobley Mountain...

... younger and more precise U-Pb zircon ages of 1011 ± 3.5 and 1010 ± 2.2 Ma for RLD. The anorthosite occurs within what is known as the “Lovingston Massif,” separated from the “Pedlar Massif” by the mid-Paleozoic Rockfish Valley Fault Zone ( cf . Sinha & Bartholomew 1984 ). Details of the field...

.... Preliminary SHRIMP (sensitive high-resolution ion microprobe) U-Pb zircon crystallization ages of selected Mesoproterozoic rocks of the Shenandoah massif in the central Virginia Blue Ridge (modified from Carter et al., 2012 ). White circles are preliminary crystallization ages, with error bars, derived from...

... and volcanic “cover” rocks of the Swift Run, Catoctin, Unicoi, and Chilhowee Group formations comprise west limb stratigraphy, proximal to Mesoproterozoic “basement,” including orthogneisses and metamorphosed granitoid rocks of the Shenandoah massif ( Rankin, 1976 ) in the core (Fig. 4 ). Eastern limb...
