Duration of a Large Mafic Intrusion and Heat Transfer in the Lower Crust: a SHRIMP U-Pb Zircon Study in the Ivrea-Verbano Zone (Western Alps, Italy)

Peressini, Gabriella; Quick, J.E.; Sinigoi, S.; Hofmann, Albrecht W.; Fanning, Christopher


The Ivrea-Verbano Zone in the western Italian Alps contains one of the world's classic examples of ponding of mantle-derived, mafic magma in the deep crust. Within it, a voluminous, composite mafic pluton, the Mafic Complex, intruded lower-crustal, high-grade paragneiss of the Kinzigite Formation during Permian-Carboniferous time, and is now exposed in cross-section as a result of Alpine uplift. The age of the intrusion is still debated because the results of geochronological studies in the...[Show more]
