The Qinling is an important orogenic belt, which formed by the joining of the North China and South China blocks. The Shaxiongdong carbonatite-syenite complexes were emplaced at the southern margin of South Qinling and border the South China block. LA-ICPMS (Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry) zircon U-Pb geochronology constrains the syenite emplacement age to be 441.8 ± 2.2 Ma, which is significantly earlier than the collision of the South China block and South Qinling...[Show more]
