Ti in zircon from the Boggy Plain zoned pluton: Implications for zircon petrology and Hadean tectonics

Ickert, Ryan; Williams, Ian; Wyborn, D


The understanding of zircon crystallization, and of the Ti-in-zircon thermometer, has been enhanced by Ti concentration measurements of zircon from a small, concentrically zoned pluton in south-eastern Australia, the Boggy Plain zoned pluton (BPZP). Zircon crystals from rocks ranging in composition from gabbro to aplite were analysed for U-Th-Pb dating and Ti concentrations by an ion microprobe. Geochronological data yield a206Pb/238U age of 417.2±2.0Ma (95% confidence) and demonstrate the...[Show more]
