Fission track ages of individual crystals of detrital apatite and sphene separated from early Eocene and Paleocene sandstones at Site 555 indicate the contribution of detritus from source rocks of at least three distinct age groups. A major group of Tertiary (56 ± 3 m.y.) apatite ages is compatible with either contemporaneous or near contemporaneous volcanism or rapid unroofing of high level intrusives like those identified previously on Rockall Island (Jones et al., 1972) and...
