U-Pb (zircon) ion probe geochronology on key lithologies at the Palaeoproterozoic Falun Zn-Pb-Cu-(Au-Ag) sulphide deposit in the south-western part of the Fennoscandian Shield has been carried out. Results suggest that dominantly felsic sub-volcanic intrusion, hydrothermal alteration, ore formation and intrusion by dykes and plutons took place in a short time interval between 1894 +/- 3 Ma and 1891 +/- 3 Ma. Analogues to intra-arc VMS mineralisation in Peru are discussed.
