Galindo Francisco, Mª del Carmen and Huertas Coronel, María José and Casquet, César (1994) Cronología Rb-Sr y K-Ar de diques de la Sierra de Guadarrama (Sistema Central Español). Geogaceta, 16 . pp. 23-26. ISSN 0213-683X
Two calcalkaline granite porphyries, an E-W and a N-S trending one, and three monzonitic dykes striking NE-SW, have been dated. For the first dyke a whole rock Rb-Sr isochrone age of 296±3 Ma, i.e. Upper Carboniferous, is obtained. However, the second dyke pro vides only a regression age of 314±31 Ma. Whole rock K-Ar ages of the monzonitic dykes are 245±7,i.e. Lower-Middle Triassic, for two of them, and 220±5 for the third. The first age rises doubts about the up-to-the-present alleged posteriority of the E-W dykes relative to the large granitic plutonism in the area. The second is geologically reasonable within the limits of error only, as N-S dykes must be younger than the Cabeza Mediana pluton, which is 291 ±6 Ma old, and older than the hydrothermal episyenitic event dated at 274±6 Ma. For the monzonitic dykes the age of 245±7 Ma is taken as representative of the injection episode, whilst the second age probably results from superimposed alteration. This alkaline episode can be correlated with the opening of the Iberian trough.
