Abstract Neoproterozoic granitic intrusions in South China have traditionally been interpreted as related to orogenesis, marking the cratonisation of the Yangtze Block. However, a number of ca. 830–820 Ma granitoids and mafic–ultramafic intrusions unconformably overlain by Neoproterozoic rift successions have recently been reinterpreted as being related to a mantle plume during the breakup of the supercontinent Rodinia. In this paper, we report SHRIMP zircon U–Pb ages from granitoids and… CONTINUE READING
