... (titanite); appinites from Arrochar and Rubha Mór give titanite ages of 426 ± 3 Ma and 427 ± 3 Ma respectively. The Strontian granodiorite is 425 ±3 Ma (zircon) and 423 ±3 Ma (titanite), and a pyroxene-mica diorite from Rat again gives an age of 425 ± 3 Ma. The data show the value of using titanite to date...

... probably failed to remove all of the effects of Pb loss. It is likely that volcanism started before plutonic crystallization, which would push the initiation of magmatism perhaps to c . 430 Ma.

... ( Fig. 1 ), Arrochar and Rubha Mor appinite intrusions have therefore been interpreted to date an important period of mid‐Silurian transcurrent faulting ( Rogers & Dunning 1991 ). In the case of the Ratagain granite, it can be shown clearly on the basis of field evidence that emplacement...
