Detrital zircon provenance constraints on the evolution of the Harts Range Metamorphic Complex (central Australia): links to the Centralian Superbasin

Buick, Ian; Hand, Martin; Williams, Ian; Mawby, Jo; Miller, Jodie; Nicoll, Robert

Description

Until recently it has been widely accepted that protoliths to metasediments of the Harts Range Metamorphic Complex (central Australia) were deposited prior to c. 1.75 Ga and form part of the Palaeoproterozoic Arunta Inlier. However, new sensitive high-resolution ion microprobe U-Pb analyses of detrital zircon, together with recently published data, suggest that they were deposited coeval with c. 545-520 Ma sediments from the adjacent, little metamorphosed Neoproterozoic to Palaeozoic Centralian...[Show more]

dc.description.abstractUntil recently it has been widely accepted that protoliths to metasediments of the Harts Range Metamorphic Complex (central Australia) were deposited prior to c. 1.75 Ga and form part of the Palaeoproterozoic Arunta Inlier. However, new sensitive high-resolution ion microprobe U-Pb analyses of detrital zircon, together with recently published data, suggest that they were deposited coeval with c. 545-520 Ma sediments from the adjacent, little metamorphosed Neoproterozoic to Palaeozoic Centralian Superbasin. Protoliths of the Harts Range Metamorphic Complex were deposited in the Irindina sub-basin, an early- to mid-Cambrian rift located between the present-day Amadeus and Georgina Basin remnants of the Centralian Superbasin. Deposition occurred during a widespread and long-lived interval of extension in parts of central Australia associated with eruption of the voluminous Kalkarinji Continental Flood Basalts. The Harts Range Metamorphic Complex was metamorphosed to upper amphibolite- to granulite-facies conditions within c. 40 Ma of deposition of its sedimentary protoliths.
