Titanite is an ideal mineral for U-Pb isotopic dating because of its relatively high U, Th and Pb contents. To check the matrix effect, titanite BLR-1 and zircon standards were analyzed as the external standards. These ages are consistent with its reference age of about Ma. Our results reveal that significant matrix effect does exist between different kinds of minerals during LA-ICPMS U-Pb age determination, whereas it is insignificant between same minerals. In addition, we determined U-Pb ages for titanites from the Early Cretaceous Fangshan pluton, which indicates a rapid cooling history of this pluton. Download to read the full article text.

Portsmouth Research Portal. Professor Craig Storey M. Smith T. In situ U—Pb dating of a variety of mineral phases is an important goal in petrology. This study reports data chiefly from titanite, but also from rutile and apatite, obtained using the laser ablation LA -ICP-MS methodology on polished thick sections in order to retain as much petrologic information as possible, and allowing trace element analyses from adjacent areas to the U—Pb analyses.
The samples analysed come from Svecofennian intermediate to acid volcanic rocks of the Porphyry Group within the major iron ore province of Norrbotten, northern Sweden, where titanite is a common phase associated with the mineralisation.

Clasts from the basal Octofad Sandstone Formation indicate input from ca. U-Pb SIMS analyses of detrital titanite record Grenville metamorphic events in the source terranes and suggest a slightly younger maximum depositional age of ca. Deposition of the Colonsay Group is, therefore, tied to the margins of Laurentia, possibly in the foreland to the Grenville Belt, as the Rhinns Complex does not record any Grenville deformation.
The data are consistent with deposition of the Colonsay Group in a foreland basin related to the Rigolet phase ca. This correlation has significant implications for Dalradian basin dynamics, timing of Dalradian deposition and timing of Dalradian deformation. In addition, the unconformable contact between the Colonsay Group and the Rhinns Complex on Islay would make it one of the few places where the basement to the Dalradian can be observed.

The U-Pb geochronologic analysis of accessory minerals has played an important role in Earth and solar system science in constraining the ages of a wide variety of rocks and minerals. Currently, the significant matrix effects observed between different accessory minerals and the lack of high-quality standards for many minerals of interest are the major limitations of its geochronological applications. In this study, we investigated the effects of the addition of oxygen, nitrogen, and water vapor before and after the ablation cell on the accuracy of the U-Pb dating of different minerals e.

Add to Favorite Get Latest Update. The stability of titanite is controlled by pressure,temperature,compositions of the bulk rock and the coexisting fluid,activity of H2O,fugacity of O2. Titanite is a common accessory mineral in a large range of rocks. It appears in different metamorphic rocks ranging from greenschist facies,blueschist facies and amphibolite facies. Its stability may extend into eclogite-facies and high-pressure granulite-facies in calcic rocks.
Because of its high U in its structure and high closure temperature upper limit of amphibolite-faces ,titanite is an ideal U-Pb dating mineral.

Li, H. Zhou, Q. Xiang, Z. Zhong, F. Palaeozoic polymetamorphism in the North Qinling orogenic belt, Central China: Insights from petrology and in situ titanite and zircon U-Pb geochronology. T1 – Palaeozoic polymetamorphism in the North Qinling orogenic belt, Central China: Insights from petrology and in situ titanite and zircon U-Pb geochronology. N2 – The Qinling orogenic belt experienced multiple phases of orogenesis during the Palaeozoic.
Unraveling the timing and P- T conditions of these events is the key to understanding the convergence processes between the South China and the North China Blocks. The Songshugou Complex, located in the southern part of the North Qinling orogenic belt, has registered multistage metamorphism in Palaeozoic, and thus potentially provides insights into the tectonic evolution of the Qinling orogenic belt. In this study, three metabasic rocks a garnet pyroxenite, a garnet amphibolite and a gneissic amphibolite from the Songshugou Complex were selected for petrological study and zircon and titanite U-Pb dating.
Our results show that the metabasic rocks experienced three metamorphic events during the Palaeozoic. The first metamorphic event M1 is characterized by high pressure conditions. Two zircon grains in equilibrium with garnet and in absence of plagioclase were recognized from the garnet pyroxenite sample.
A multidisciplinary provenance study, including in situ U-Pb dating of detrital titanite, was undertaken on the enigmatic low-grade.
Print Send Add Share. Titanite was selected to date metamorphism because of the relatively high closure temperature for radiogenic Pb loss and involvement in amphibolite facies assemblages. Titanite grains were measured in-situ in polished thin sections using laser ablation ICP-MS analysis. The isotopes U, Pb, Pb, and Pb were measured on grains adjacent to metamorphic minerals such as garnet, which were previously analyzed by electron microprobe to determine the pressure and temperature conditions of metamorphism.
These results indicate the growth of these metamorphic assemblages during the M1 and M2 events i. Three samples produced Pb-Pb ages older than M1 metamorphism. They are interpreted to be relict detrital titanite or were from older stratigraphy than previously thought. Two samples provided titanite ages younger than the regional M3 metamorphic event i. These samples reveal hydrothermal events in the EYC that have only recently been recognized.
