252.17 - 541 Ma
|Paleozoic intrusive and metamorphic terranes|
Age: Paleozoic (252.17 - 541 Ma)
Comments: Mixtures of metamorphic and intrusive or plutonic rocks, tracts known as crystalline, migmatitic terranes, moderately to highly metamorphosed rocks of unknown origin with or without intrusions. This classification is inherently prone to variable interpretation, as other compilers might distinguish some packages by their metamorphic or gneissic protoliths, and the associated age ranges may be more variable.
Lithology: Intrusive and metamorphic terranes
