Geochronology and tectonic significance of A-type granite from Misho, NW Iran: Implications for the detachment of Cimmeria from Gondwana and the opening of Neo-Tethys

Jamei, Susan; Ghorbani, Mansour; Jafari, Amin; Williams, Ian; Moayyed, Mohsen


The Cimmerian Terrane, part of which forms the Central Iranian Plateau, is one of several continental fragments produced during the early- to mid-Palaeozoic breakup of the northern margin of Gondwana. Magmatic evidence for the final separation of the Terrane from Gondwana and formation of the intervening Neo-Tethys Ocean is preserved in the Misho Mountains SW of Marand, NW Iran.
