The Concord Mountains are a ramified system of mountain ranges in the northwest of the East Antarctic Victoria Land , which consists of the Everett Range , the Mirabito Range , the King Range , the Leitch Massif, the East Quartzite Range and the West Quartzite Range .

The area was mapped by surveying work by the United States Geological Survey and using aerial photographs by the United States Navy between 1960 and 1963. The northern group of a campaign as part of the New Zealand Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition , which explored the area between 1963 and 1964, named this Mountains according to the unity prevailing in the exploration of the area between five nations (English: concord ).
