|Title:||The Algodoes amphibolite-tonalite gneiss sequence, Borborema Province, NE Brazil: Geochemical and geochronological evidence for Palaeoproterozoic accretion of oceanic plateau/back-arc basalts and adakitic plutons|
|Abstract:||Field relationships, geochemistry and U-Pb zircon and Sm-Nd whole-rock geochronology are used to constrain the genesis of Palaeoproterozoic massive amphibolites and orthogneisses of the Algodoes Sequence, Central Ceara Domain, Northeastern Brazil. The 2236 +/- 55 Ma-old Algodoes amphibolites show trace element geochemical signature and positive epsilon Nd(t) values similar to Phanaerozoic oceanic plateau basalts and less often to back-arc basalts. The amphibolites are intruded by tonalitic to quartz-dioritic gneisses of the Cipo unit which were dated at 2160-2170 Ma and 2130 Ma. Neodimium isotope data and whole-rock geochemistry for these gneisses show they are akin to juvenile arc plutonics of the adakitic suite. The likely occurrence of Palaeoproterozoic plateau basalts and arc plutonics in this part of northeastearn Brazil render comparisons with similar terranes elsewhere in South America and Africa, which in turn indicate a significant contribution of accretionary orogens in the early assembly of the Columbia Supercontinent.
