From the abstracts of some of the referenced papers:

The high-grade metamorphic rocks of the Colbeck Archipelago comprise granulite facies metasedimentary gneisses and charnockitic gneisses of three ages. A suite of rocks previously mapped as the Colbeck Gneiss is shown to be composite in age ... View entire text
