Direct dating of Fe oxide-(Cu-Au) mineralization by U/Pb

Previous age determinations of these deposits were constrained by the age of the altered host granitoids, and the assumption that Fe mineralization was directly related to pluton emplacement. Zircon crystals extracted from the ore yield ages that show that ore mineralization was episodic and younger than pluton emplacement.
