Radiometric ages indicate that most, if not all, of the major intrusions in the Little Belt Mountains, central Montana, were emplaced during the Eocene epoch, between 48 and 54 m.y. ago. In the Hughesville area, igneous activity continued, or was episodic until 42 m.y. ago. As a result of the continued igneous activity, radiometric ages in the Hughesville area can be interpreted either as primary ages or as reset ages.
