New 40Ar/39Ar analyses from a transect across the major tectonic units of the southwest Amazon craton document the heterogeneous effects of the late Mesoproterozoic collision with the Grenville margin of North America. Basement rocks of the Amazon and adjacent Paragua cratons mostly preserve pre-Grenvillian ages (older than 1.3 Ga). Localized isotopic age(More)
The Gavião block in the northern portion of the São Francisco craton, northeast Brazil, is one of the oldest Archean fragments of the South American platform. It underwent polycyclic evolution from very old juvenile components dated between 3400 and 3000 Ma. The studied parts of the Umburanas greenstone belt (UGB) formed over ‘stable’ continental crust.(More)
The Glória quartz-monzodiorite, one of the mafic plutons of the Paleoproterozoic Mineiro belt, is intrusive into banded gneisses, amphibolites, schists and phyllites of the Rio das Mortes greenstone belt, in the southern portion of the São Francisco Craton, State of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The Glória quartz-monzodiorite yields a SHRIMP U-Pb zircon age of 2188(More)
