Abstract

A 14 point Rb/Sr whole rock isochron obtained from the Morar Pelite in the Morar area of the Northern Highlands suggests an age of 1024± 96 Ma for the main metamorphism of the Morar Moines. Within error this age overlaps that recently given for the Ardgour Gneiss and thus confirms the existence of Grenvillian elements within the Northern Highland Block. It suggests that the tectono-metamorphic history of the southwestern Moines is more complex than hitherto thought.
