Abstract One of the major advancements in understanding the formation and evolution of the North China Craton was the recognition of a Himalayan-type collisional belt in the central part of the craton, called the Trans-North China Orogen (TNCO), along which two micro-continental blocks, named the Eastern Block and Western Block, joined together to form a coherent craton. However, controversy still remains about the pre-collisional tectonic setting and architectures of the TNCO. In this contribut...

Abstract Subduction zones are critical sites for carbon cycling between Earth’s surface and interior. However, how subducted carbon is released and transferred to the surface is not well understood, especially regarding the role of slab-derived fluids in the deep carbon cycle. Here we report Mo and B isotopic data for the Silurian normal arc andesites and adakitic andesites from the Chinese North Tianshan, which represent partial melts of fluid-modified mantle wedge and dehydrated oceanic crust,...

Abstract The Central Asian Orogenic Belt (CAOB), the largest accretionary orogen on Earth, has received considerable attention in the last 25 years. Various models have been proposed to explain the evolution of the CAOB, incorporating processes such as the lateral duplication of one single arc system along large shear zones, terrane accretion/amalgamation, oroclinal bending, ridge subduction, and trench migration. To better understand accretionary processes along the southwestern Siberian margin...

Abstract Whole-rock geochemical and Sr–Nd–Pb–Hf isotopic analyses were conducted on the Triassic Ashele post-orogenic basalts from the Chinese Altai. The tholeiitic Ashele basalts possess moderate Na2O (2.46–4.52 wt%) but extremely low K2O (≤0.06 wt%) contents, and are depleted in light rare earth elements (LREE). Their (La/Sm)N and (La/Yb)N ratios range from 0.78 to 0.88 and from 0.72 to 0.84, respectively, which, together with their low initial 87Sr/86Sr (0.7048–0.7052), high eNd(t) (+4.9 to +...

Abstract Tectonic transition from post-collision to intraplate settings is a crucial process in orogenic belts. To characterize such a transition in the Chinese Altai, we conduct an integrated study on Permian to Triassic granitoids. Zircon U–Pb dating reveals that the granitoids can be subdivided into two stages: early Permian (291–286 Ma) and late Triassic (216–209 Ma). Granitoids of both two stages exhibit high SiO2, low Mg#, low Cr and Ni contents, and variable Sr–Nd–Hf isotopes, all of whic...

Cenozoic continental basalts are widespread in central Asia. To explore their source nature and petrogenesis, this study presents an integrated study of olivine chemistry, bulk-rock 40Ar/39Ar age and geochemistry as well as Sr–Nd–Pb–B–Mo isotopes for the Miocene (ca. 15.5 Ma) Halaqiaola basalts in the Chinese Altai, central Asia. The Halaqiaola basalts mostly have basanite compositions with high total alkali (Na2O + K2O = 6.89–8.01 wt%) contents and high K2O/Na2O (0.87–1.39) ratios. Compared wit...

Abstract The Carboniferous Tuwu-Yandong porphyry Cu deposits, located in the eastern Tianshan, are the largest porphyry Cu deposits in the Xinjiang province, China. This work presents new zircon and apatite fission track (ZFT and AFT) data from this porphyry Cu deposit, combined with inverse thermal modeling and previously published ages to reveal their preservation condition and exhumation history. Specifically, four cooling episodes are recognized: rapid cooling (24–44 °C/Ma) during the early ...

The paper presents the results of geological, geochemical and isotope-geochronological studies of subvolcanic rhyolites of the Western Gorny Altai and Rudny Altai which have related to two large volcanic systems, the Altai-Minusinsk and Altai-Salair, respectively. The results of U-Pb isotopic dating of zircons revealed two groups of ages ~410-405 and 390-381 million years. Isotope-geochemical characteristics of rhyolites show relatively high values of e Nd ( T ) = +2,7...6,0 with relatively youn...
