U-Pb geochronology and zircon composition of late Variscan S- and I-type granitoids from the Spanish Central System batholith

Orejana, David; Villaseca, Carlos; Valverde-Vaquero, Pablo; Belousova, Elena; Armstrong, Richard


The Spanish Central System (SCS) batholith, located in the Central Iberian Zone, is one of the largest masses of granite in the European Variscan Belt. This batholith is a composite unit of late- and post-kinematic granitoids dominated by S- and I-type series granite, with subordinate leucogranite and granodiorite. Zircon trace element contents, from two representative S-type and three I-type granitoids from the eastern portion of the SCS batholith, indicate a heterogeneous composition due to...[Show more]
