Abstract Charnockite plutons were intruded into Meso-Neoproterozoic (similar to 1000 Ma) high-grade metamorphic zone in the northern Prince Charles Mountains (PCM), East Antarctica, immediately after peak granulite metamorphism in the region. Detailed geochemical and Sr-Nd isotopic studies were carried out on these plutons and related rocks, which enables important constraints to be placed on the regional tectonic setting as well as the origin of igneous charnockites.
