The neoproterozoic Mantiqueira Province and its African connections: a zircon-based U-Pb geochronologic subdivision for the Brasiliano/Pan-African systems of orogens

da Silva, Luiz Carlos; McNaughton, N J; Armstrong, Richard; Hartmann, Leo A.; Fletcher, I.R.


The Mantiqueira Province (MPV) is a large, complex structural province deformed by the Neoproterozoic/Early Paleozoic Brasiliano Orogenic event in South America. Its evolution is herein detailed on the basis of the geological and geometric characterisation, structural and thermal overlapping of the distinct phases of the orogenic collage. In addition to the tectono-structural analysis, some 50 new zircon U-Pb SHRIMP data from a large number of selected units provided a powerful tool for...[Show more]
