... Picuris orogeny. These garnet-sillimanite-bearing metapelites are found within the southern Rio Grande rift at Kilbourne Hole and Potrillo Maar in southern New Mexico and northern Chihuahua. Geothermobarometry and rutile with Quaternary U-Pb dates indicate equilibration in the local lower crust, which...

... Canada to the southwestern United States. Unlike the preceding Paleoproterozoic Yavapai/Mazatzal orogenies and the subsequent late Mesoproterozoic Grenville orogeny, the early–mid-Mesoproterozoic Picuris orogeny in the southwestern United States was relatively unrecognized until about two decades ago...

..., and plutonism from the Paleoproterozoic to Mesoproterozoic. Hf-isotopic data suggest the involvement of older, nonjuvenile crust. In this area, effects of the Mazatzal (ca. 1.65 Ga) and Picuris orogenies (ca. 1.49–1.45 Ga) are entwined and involved sedimentation, deformation, pluton emplacement, and pluton...

.... From 1470 Ma to 1400 Ma, greenschist- to amphibolite-facies metamorphism (M3) and largely granitic plutonism occurred during the protracted Picuris orogeny. These results demonstrate the power of monazite and xenotime analyses to constrain depositional ages, provenance, and pressure-temperature-time...

... and deformed and intruded sediments in the upper Salt River Canyon allow us to revise the timing of deformation to ca. 1470–1444 Ma, contemporaneous with the Picuris orogeny in New Mexico. Fold- and thrust-style deformation of the Mazatzal Group was previously interpreted to be Paleoproterozoic...

These events reflect regional shortening and crustal thickening that are most consistent with convergent to collisional orogenesis—the Mesoproterozoic Picuris orogeny—in southwestern Laurentia.

. Oldest biotite and muscovite ages are interpreted to mark the end of high-grade metamorphism during the Picuris orogeny. Isotopic dates younger than the oldest muscovite and biotite cooling ages are interpreted to indicate tectonic reactivation and protracted slow cooling in the middle crust ( Grambling
