Two fractions of zircon from a tectonised tonalite from within metagabbro of the Kjosen Unit of the Lyngen Magmatic Complex give a concordant U-Pb age of 469 +- 5 Ma. This is interpreted as a minimum age for the Kjosen Unit. This Late Arenig- Llanvirn age is similar to that found in the last stages of magmatic development of the Karmøy Ophiolite Complex of Southwest Norway.
