The Fiskenæsset complex in southern West Greenland is part of the North Atlantic craton and is a layered intrusion consisting of gabbro, ultramafic and anorthositic rocks that was deformed during multiple episodes of folding and metamorphism (Myers 1985). We collected late-stage magmatic hornblenditic dykes and adjacent anorthosites and studied these samples integratively with several in situ techniques to determine the igneous and metamorphic history of the Fiskenæsset complex. The work presented here is part of an ongoing joint project between the Greenland Bureau of Minerals and Petroleum and the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS). Here we report on new radiometric ages and mineral chemistry data from anorthosites from the North Atlantic craton in southern West Greenland (Fig. 1).
