Cretaceous through Paleogene dominantly calc-alkaline magmatism in the Lake Clark region, southwestern Alaska, can be divided into three main periods of activity based on previous work and new 40Ar/39Ar and U-Pb geochronology. These episodes follow a protracted history of arc magmatism related to the Talkeetna arc. The first episode is Albian based on new 40Ar/39Ar dates from hornblende in dikes cutting the Tlikakila complex of 101–97 Ma. These rocks have relatively flat REE patterns and Th/Nb values lower than typical arc rocks but higher than average mid-ocean ridge basalt (MORB). These data are consistent...
