Terminal Neoproterozoic (Ediacaran) granitoid rocks underlie most of the Southeastern New England Avalon Zone. Major- and trace-element analyses on representative samples from Massachusetts and Rhode Island corroborate earlier interpretations that these rocks were formed in a subduction-related setting. New crystallization ages from the same suite are 609.5 ± 1.1 Ma, 609.1 ± 1.1 Ma, and 608.9 ± 1.2 Ma for units of the Dedham Granite; 606.3 ± 1.2 Ma for the Milford Granite; 604.4 ± 1.2 Ma for the Fall River Granite; and 599 ± 2 Ma for the Esmond Granite (2σ errors, including internal and external uncertainties).
