Abstract

The Early Proterozoic Torngat Orogen resulted from the oblique collision of the Archean Nain and southeastern Rae provinces and evolved in four stages: (1) deposition of platformal supracrustal assemblages followed by subduction-related arc magmatism in the margin of the Rae Province; (I) crustal thickening and nappe tectonics; (II) sinistral transpression and formation of the Abloviak shear zone; (III) uplift on steeply dipping, east-verging mylonites along the eastern orogenic front. U-Pb geochronology on zircon and monazite from major rock units and syntectonic intrusions indicates that arc magmatism at ca. 1880 Ma was followed by 40 Ma. of deformation and high-grade metamorphism from ca. 1860 to 1820. Subsequent uplift and final cooling occurred ca. 1795-1770 Ma. Several ages of mineral growth that correspond to distinct structural and metamorphic events have been recognized. -from Authors
