U-Pb zircon and monazite age constraints on granulite-facies metamorphism and deformation in the Strangways Metamorphic Complex (central Australia)

Moller, Andreas; Hensen, Bas; Armstrong, Richard; Mezger, Klaus; Ballevre, Michel


The age of Proterozoic granulite facies metamorphism and deformation in the Strangways Metamorphic Complex (SMC) of central Australia is determined on zircon grown in syn-metamorphic and syn-deformational orthopyroxene-bearing, enderbitic, veins. SHRIMP zircon studies suggest that M1-M2 and the correlated periods of intense deformation (D1-D2) are part of a single tectonothermal event between 1,717 ± 2 and 1,732 ± 7 Ma. It is considered unlikely that the two metamorphic phases (M1, M2)...[Show more]
