Abstract: U-Pb and Pb-evaporation zircon ages, together with whole-rock Sm-Nd and Pb-Pb data, are used to unravel the tectonic evolution of the northern segment of the Itabuna-Salvador-Curaçá Orogen, northeastern São Francisco Craton. The results of this geochronologic study indicate that oceanic crust and island arc sequences accreted at 3.3 Ga, forming the Mundo Novo Greenstone Belt, and that between 2.2-2.12 Ga the Rio Itapicuru and Rio Capim Greenstone Belts were formed in a similar fashion. Age data and Nd isotopes also suggest that Andean-type continental margins are likely to have formed in the span of time 3.08-2.98 Ga, giving rise to the TTG belts of Retirolândia and Jacurici river, and to the Caraíba Complex between 2.69 - 2.63 Ga. Around 2109 Ma, continent-continent collision closed the Rio Itapicuru volcano-sedimentary basin, as inferred from the syntectonic emplacement of the Itareru Tonalite between the Rio Itapicuru Greenstone Belt to the east and the banded gneisses of the Serrinha Block to the west. This collision culminated in a major shift from frontal or oblique convergence to orogen-parallel block-escape about 2084 Ma ago and continued at least till 2039 Ma. During this event several elongated granitic and syenitic bodies were emplaced in the continental crust. The Itiúba Syenite, dated at 2084 Ma and stretching over 150 km east of the Caraíba Complex, is an example of one of these intrusive bodies.
