Fluid inclusion microthermometric data from five temporally controlled vein sets in the southeastern Piedmont province record changes in fluid composition and deformation conditions during regional exhumation and cooling related to postorogenic Mesozoic rifting. In general, compositions of postmetamorphic fluids are remarkably consistent across the southeastern Piedmont, indicating regional fracture connectivity during fluid-trapping events between the end of the Alleghanian collisional orogeny and the opening of the Atlantic Ocean.

Late Paleozoic P1 and P2 quartz veins associated with post-Alleghanian stress relaxation contain metamorphic CO2-H2O-NaCl fluids that were trapped under fluctuating lithostatic (125–240 MPa) to hydrostatic...
