Abstract

THIS communication is a report of the age measurement project carried out on rocks from the Sör-Rondane Mountains (Queen Maud Land, 23° E. to 28° E.). The rocks were sampled by Picciotto1,2 during the 1958 Belgian Antarctic Expedition led by Gaston de Gerlache1. A first set of results has already been published3. The biotite strontium/rubidium ages of various eruptive and metamorphic rocks ranged from 460 to 500 million years.
