Detrital zircon ages and geochronological constraints on the Neoproterozoic Puga diamictites and associated BIFs in the southern Paraguay Belt, Brazil

Babinski, Marly; Boggiani, P.C.; Trindade, R.I.F.; Fanning, Christopher


The Paraguay belt comprises a thick sedimentary succession deposited on the southwestern border of the Amazonian Craton and the Rio Apa Block. The base of the succession in the southern Paraguay belt is marked by a level of glacially derived deposits from the Puga Formation associated with banded iron formations, which has been assumed to be end-Cryogenian in age (635Ma) by previous authors is spite of the lack of geochronological data. Here we present the first U-Pb SHRIMP ages on detrital...[Show more]
