The Nyalam detachment is part of the east-west striking South Tibetan Detachment System exposed in the Nyalam area, southern Tibet. Seventeen muscovite and biotite 40Ar/39Ar age spectra and three K-feldspar multidiffusion domain modelling and cooling ages are presented for metamorphic rocks, leucogranite, granite and mylonite, collected from the Nyalam detachment and surrounding areas. The majority of the 40Ar/39Ar results are cooling ages related to exhumation, which therefore place important constraints on formation of the Nyalam detachment and exhumation history of the region. Muscovite 40Ar/39Ar ages from mylonite within the normal...
