Abstract
Abstract Cretaceous granites are widely exposed in the Tengchong Terrane that is the southern extension of the Tibetan Plateau, resulting from the evolution of the Tethys. They, therefore, play a critical role in deciphering the Tethys evolution and the growth of the Tibetan Plateau. In this paper, we present new zircon U Pb dating and Hf isotopic results, along with whole-rock elemental and Sr Nd isotopic data of the granitoids from the Lushui-Pianma (LP) batholith and its mafic enclaves and the strongly deformed granites from the Gaoligong shear zone in the northern Tengchong Terrane. The dating results show that both the LP granitic batholith and the strongly deformed granites in the Gaoligong shear zone formed in the Early Cretaceous of 122–110 Ma. They are composed of granodiorite, quartz monzodiorite and monzogranite with minor gabbroic enclaves. Mineralogically and geochemically, the granitoids in the LP batholith, particularly for the less evolved ones, display a metaluminous nature and an affinity to I-type granite. All the granitoids are characterized by similar rare and trace patterns and whole-rock Nd and zircon Hf isotopic compositions, indicating a common origin. The sodium-rich feature for the less evolved dioritic rocks and the predominantly negative zircon e Hf ( t ) and whole-rock e Nd ( t ) values for all the granitoids demonstrate that they were derived mainly from the partial melting of the Mesoproterozoic metabasic rocks (likely the basement rocks of the Gaoligong Group) in the lower crust of the Tengchong Terrane. In the case of the mafic enclaves, they share similar mineralogical assemblages and Nd Hf isotopic compositions to its host granodiorite, indicating a cognate origin with the latter. In combination with previous data for the granitoids in the Tengchong Terrane, our study further illustrates that the Early Cretaceous granitic rocks are dominated by metaluminous I-type granites with minor highly fractionated peraluminous I-type granites, rather than the dominant S-type granites as assumed before. The new identification of the Myitkyina Meso-Tethys ophiolitic suite in eastern Myanmar, together with regional Early Cretaceous magmatic and sedimentation patterns, indicate that these Early Cretaceous magmatic rocks were the products of the evolution of the Myitkyina Tethys Ocean, which was related to post-collisional slab breakoff.

Abstract Cratons are generally considered as the most stable tectonic units on the Earth. Rare magmatism, seismic activity, and intracrustal ductile deformation occur in them. However, several cratons experienced entirely different fates, including the North China Craton (NCC), and were subsequently destroyed. Geodynamic mechanisms and timing of the cratonic destruction are strongly debated. In this paper, we investigate a suite of Mesozoic intermediate to felsic volcanic rocks which are collect...

Abstract Geochemical variations in granitic rocks may be controlled by their source rocks, melting reactions and subsequent magmatic processes, which resulted from various geodynamic processes related to subduction, collision, or slab break-off. Here we report new LA–ICP-MS zircon U–Pb ages and Hf isotopes, whole-rock chemistry and Sr–Nd isotopes for the late Early Cretaceous quartz diorite, granodiorite and monzogranite in the Gaoligong belt, southeastern Tibet Plateau. The zircon U–Pb dating y...

Abstract The Na-rich intermediate-to-felsic granitic rocks provide insights into the generation of magmas in subduction zones. This paper presents zircon LA-ICP-MS U–Pb ages as well as whole-rock geochemical, mineral chemical, and in situ zircon Hf isotopic data on Na-rich granitic rocks from the Tengchong Block, SW China. The granodiorites and associated mafic magmatic enclaves (MMEs) from the Menglian batholith yield zircon U–Pb ages of 116.1 ± 0.8 to 117.8 ± 0.6 Ma and 117.7 ± 0.7 Ma, respect...

Abstract The Early Cretaceous granitoids that are widespread in the Tengchong terrane of Southwest China play a critical role in understanding the tectonic framework associated with the Tethyan oceans. In this study, we present a detailed description of zircon U–Pb ages, whole-rock geochemistry and Hf isotopes for the Laoxiangkeng pluton in the eastern Tengchong terrane and elucidate their petrogenesis and geodynamic implications. Zircon U–Pb dating of the Laoxiangkeng pluton yields ages of 114 ...

ABSTRACTZircon U–Pb ages and geochemical and isotopic data for Late Ordovician granites in the Baoshan Block reveal the early Palaeozoic tectonic evolution of the margin of East Gondwana. The granites are high-K, calc-alkaline, metaluminous to strongly peraluminous rocks with A/CNK values of 0.93–1.18, are enriched in SiO2, K2O, and Rb, and depleted in Nb, P, Ti, Eu, and heavy rare earth elements, which indicates the crystallization fractionation of the granitic magma. Zircon U–Pb dating indicat...

Abstract The Tengchong Block of Southwestern China is key to tracing the eastward subduction of Neo-Tethys and collision between Indian and Asian continents. The block contains a magmatic belt that represents the southeastward continuation of the Gangdese belt, produced by the eastward subduction of eastern Neo-Tethyan oceanic lithosphere. In this paper we present geochemical and geochronological data of Late Cretaceous to Early Paleocene (~ 64 Ma) granitic rocks of the Guyong and Husa batholith...

Abstract Ophiolites within Myanmar have been commonly divided into two belts, i.e., the Eastern Belt and Western Belt. The Kalaymyo ophiolite from the Western Belt crops out at the eastern margin of the Indo-Burma Range and was formed during the Early Cretaceous, whereas the Myitkyina ophiolite from the Eastern Belt was formed during the Middle Jurassic. Both ophiolites are characterized by the occurrence of big massifs of mantle peridotites. Mantle peridotites of the Kalaymyo ophiolite are main...

Abstract The Gaoligong belt is located in the southeastern margin of the Tibetan plateau, and is bound by the Tengchong and Baoshan blocks. This paper presents new data from zircon geochronology, geochemistry, and whole-rock Sr–Nd–Pb–Hf isotopes to evaluate the tectonic evolution of the Gaoligong belt. The major rock types analysed in the present study are granitic gneiss, granodiorite, and granite. They are metaluminous to peraluminous and belong to high-K, calc-alkaline series. Laser ablation ...

Ophiolites that crop out in Southeast Asia represent the relics of the Tethys Ocean, which existed between the continents of Gondwana and Laurasia during much of the Mesozoic. Two ophiolite belts in Myanmar, i.e., the Eastern Belt and the Western Belt, have been conventionally regarded as parts of a single suture connecting with the Yarlung-Tsangpo suture in the Tibetan Plateau and displaced by the dextral Sagaing fault. Here we present for the first time a combined analysis of zircon secondary ...

Abstract Early Cretaceous granitoids are widespread on the Tibetan Plateau and record the tectonic evolution of several Tethyan oceans. We describe Early Cretaceous high-Mg (Mg # > 50) and low-Mg (Mg # Pb dating reveals two episodes of granitoid emplacement at ~122 and ~117 Ma. High-Mg series rocks have higher Mg # and compatible element concentrations (e.g., Cr and Ni) than low-Mg series samples. Their Mg # and compatible element abundances are also elevated relative to an experimental melt gen...
