Abstract: Several granitic plutons have intruded the Palaeoproterozoic Rio Itapicuru greenstone belt, Sao Francisco craton, Brazil, in the time interval 2163-2080 Ma, but their tectonic significance is poorly understood. The Fazenda Gaviao granodiorite (FGG) is one of a set of plutons emplaced along the western boundary of the greenstone belt with Archaean migmatite-gneiss basement. The pluton is mostly composed of hornblende granodiorite, occasionally crosscut by syn-plutonic mafic dykes. The FGG is metaluminous, medium- to high-K calc-alkaline with relatively constant silica abundances (SiO(2) similar to 63-66 wt%), high Sr (900-800 ppm) and high Ba (1000-1500 ppm). The associated mafic dykes are ultrapotassic, with high abundances of Ba, Sr, MgO, Ni, Cr, and light rare earth elements, suggesting derivation from partial melts of an enriched mantle source. The FCC originated probably by fractional crystallization from a primitive K-rich mafic magma that interacted with crustal melts. Its zircon U Pb SHRIMP age of 2106 +/- 6 Ma indicates that the FCC is younger than the early (2163-2127 Ma) tonalite-trondhjemite-granodiorite (TIC) and calc-alkaline arc plutons of the greenstone belt, and is closely related in time and space with potassic to ultrapotassic plutons (ca. 2110-2105 Ma). The negative epsilon(Nd(t)) of FGG and coeval K-rich plutons of the Rio Itapicuru greenstone belt contrasts markedly with the positive epsilon(Nd(t)) of the older arc plutons, indicating a major change of isotope signatures in granites of the Rio Itapicuru greenstone belt with time. This isotope shift may be related to magma contamination with older continental material and/or derivation of the parental potassic magma from enriched lithospheric mantle sources. We suggest that the K-rich plutons were emplaced during or shortly after Palaeoproterozoic arc-continent collision. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
