Devonian magmatism in the accretionary complex of southern Chile
Supposed or potential Devonian igneous rocks in the accretionary complex of southern Chile were investigated using sensitive high-resolution ion microprobe U–Pb dating of zircon, with Hf- and O-isotope analyses of selected grains. Ages of 384 ± 3 and 382 ± 2 Ma are confirmed for two igneous bodies (another having been previously dated at 397 ± 1 Ma). Detrital zircon ages in the host rocks, some associated with Devonian marine fossils, indicate maximum possible sedimentation ages of c. 330 –...[Show more]
