Geochemistry and zircon U-Pb-Hf isotopic data for Permo-Carboniferous sediments in the Solonker Zone, Inner Mongolia, China: constraints on depositional age, provenance and tectonic setting

Chen, Yan; Zhang, Zhicheng; Fanning, Christopher Mark; Yang, Jinfu; Fu, Bin; Wu, Tairan


The Permo-Carboniferous tectonic setting of the SE Central Asian Orogenic Belt is poorly understood, especially with regard to the development of the Solonker (Suture) Zone. New stratigraphic, geochemical and detrital zircon analyses for Permo-Carboniferous sediments have been undertaken to resolve this problem. In the Mandula area, the Baotege Formation and former Amushan Formation were deposited in the early Permian. An unstable alluvial-proluvial fan to a stable shallow marine environment...[Show more]
