New geochronological data from the Canigó massif (Eastern Pyrenees) using U–Pb SIMS on zircon provide
evidence of the existence of a Late Ordovician (456–446 Ma) plutonic event that emplaced granitic and
dioritic bodies into a Late Neoproterozoic–Early Paleozoic metasedimentary series. These are the first
geochronological data documenting this magmatic episode in the Pyrenees, which is coeval with
synsedimentary volcanism and normal fault development in rocks of the Upper Ordovician. This Late
Ordovician magmatic event postdates a ?Middle Ordovician compressional episode recorded in the pre-
Upper Ordovician sequence, and is distinct from an Early Ordovician magmatic event that gave rise to the
protoliths of large gneissic bodies cropping out in the Pyrenees. This evolution argues against a continuous
extensional regime related to the opening of the Rheic or the Rheic and Paleotethys oceans in this segment of
the Northern Gondwana margin during the Ordovician and Silurian.
