Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This is a release of an Excel containing 1341 accepted U-Pb ages for detrital zircons for wells in the Brock I-20 (6430-6710; 5700-5790), Pollux G-60 (9160-9250), Isachsen J-37, Satellite F-68 (7890-7980; 6100-6170). Figs. 1-4 show wells with formation tops, lithology and geophysical logs; Fig 5 shows summary of probability density age plots for all the samples, and a composite probability density age plot for all the data. These data help understand the age of the rock units (maximum depositional age) and the source region for the sandstones.
