Characterisation and tracing of Permian magmatism in the south-western segment of the Gondwanan margin; U-Pb age, Lu-Hf and O isotopic compositions of detrital zircons from metasedimentary complexes of northern Antarctic Peninsula and western Patagonia

Castillo Gonzalez, Paula; Fanning, Christopher; Herve, Francisco; Lacassie, Juan Pablo


Metasedimentary rocks in the Antarctic Peninsula and south-western Patagonia record detrital zircon evidence for significant Permian magmatic events along the Palaeo-Pacific margin of south West Gondwana. However, it is unclear where and how this magmatism formed due to the lack of outcropping Permian igneous sources at similar latitudes. Combined U-Pb, O, and Lu-Hf isotope analyses of detrital zircon grains in Permo-Triassic metasedimentary rocks indicate that the Permian magmatism resulted...[Show more]
