The age of metamorphism of diamondiferous rocks determined with SHRIMP dating of zircon

Hermann, Joerg; Rubatto, Daniela; Korsakov, Andrey V; Shatsky, V

Description

In situ dating of zircon domains with a Sensitive High Resolution Ion Microprobe (SHRIMP) has been proved to be the best way to determine the age of peak metamorphic conditions in the diamondiferous, deeply subducted Kokchetav rocks. Three independent studies obtained within error-consistent results, providing evidence for peak metamorphic conditions at about 530 Ma. These studies demonstrated through mineral inclusions that the dated zircon crystals formed under peak metamorphic conditions,...[Show more]
