Geochronological investigations of early Archean gneiss complexes by U-Pb dating methods are complicated by the presence of zircon populations that contain multiple ages of magmatic and metamorphic growth, and inherited components from premagmatic crust formation processes. In an early ion-microprobe study in the Saglek block, Nain Province, northern Labrador, identical ages for magmatism of 3.73 Ga were reported for both amphibolite- and granulite-grade orthogneisses, based on the oldest 207Pb/206Pb ages in two and three grains, respectively (Schiøtte et al., 1989). Here we present zircon ages for the same rock units as in the previous study...
