Detrital zircon age distribution for the Paleogene Renova Formation, southwestern Montana, USA
These are new detrital zircon data for the Paleogene Renova Formation (and equivalents) of southwestern Montana, published for the first time in the Schwartz et al. (2019) "Tectonics" paper titled "Orogenic recycling of detrital zircons characterizes age distributions of North American Cordilleran strata". This dataset includes 19 sandstone samples from fluvial and alluvial fan deposits of the Renova Formation (and equivalents). Samples are Eocene and Oligocene in age.
