Peri-Gondwanan origin and early geodynamic history of NE Sicily: A zircon tale from the basement of the Peloritani Mountains

Williams, Ian; Fiannacca, Patrizia; Cirrincione, Rosolino; Pezzino, Antonino


The ages of detrital zircon grains from one paragneiss and inherited zircon cores from two augen gneisses from the amphibolite facies basement of the Peloritani Mountains (southern Italy) measured by SHRIMP U-Pb constrain the previously unknown deposition age of the original sediments and help to elaborate a model for their provenance and subsequent evolution. The deposition age is latest Neoproterozoic to Cambrian (~ 545. Ma), bracketed by the combined ages of the youngest detrital/inherited...[Show more]
