Cerium is one of multivalent rear earth elements, which can transfer from trivalence to tretavalence at oxidizing environment. This process may cause variable degrees of fractionation of Ce from other trivalent rear earth elements, and thus may provide specific insight into the geological processes associated with marked redoxomorphism. Multiple geochemical tracing of Sr-Nd-Ce isotopes are performed on the felsic and mafic intrusives of the Neoproterozoic (~800 Ma) Huangling complex located at the eastern Three Gorges, South China. The intrusive rocks exclusively show various extents of negative Ce anomalies. On the εCe-εNd plot, most samples from the mafic intrusions scatter within the second quadrant, whereas those from the felsic intrusions within the fourth Quadrant. Both of the two groups exhibit relatively large range of εCe(t) variation but limited εNd(t) range, which cause a deviation from the “crustal array” and reveal a decoupled Nd-Ce isotope correlation. The intermediate-felsic suite have varied Ce/Ce* ratios but broadly proximate εCe(t) values, indicating that their negative Ce anomalies were generated during the magmatism; on the contrary, a positive correlation between εCe(t) and Ce/Ce* is observed for the intermediate-mafic suite, an indication of an origin of post-magmatic alteration or metamorphism for their Ce anomalies. Calculation of model age, the occurrence age of negative Ce anomalies (TCe) for the intermediate-mafic samples infers that the alteration events took place >350 Ma. Data showed that negative Ce anomalies of the felsic intrusions may reflect an increase of oxygen fugacity during magma ascending, rather than an inheritance from their source rocks. This explanation implies that the Neoproterozoic magmatism occurred at the continental nucleus of the Yangtze block were developing at a geodynamic context of rapidly regional uplifting. © 2016, China University of Geosciences and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

To understand the deep structure and seismogenesis in the north-south seismic zone (NSSZ) in southwest China, we collected a large number of P and S wave arrival time data from both local earthquakes and teleseismic events to invert simultaneously for the three-dimensional P and S wave velocity (Vp, Vs) structures in the crust and upper mantle. The obtained Vp and Vs models are generally coherent with each other from the crust to the mantle transition zone. The NSSZ is characterized by strong structural heterogeneities from the mountainous areas of southeastern Tibet to the Yangtze Platform. Low-Vp and low-Vs anomalies are generally imaged in the upper crust under the Sichuan basin, showing good agreement with the surface geological features that the foreland basin contains primarily Mesozoic and Paleozoic sedimentary rocks with a thickness of several kilometers. The deep part of the Yangtze Platform is characterized by a cratonic lithospheric body dipping southwestward down to 400 km depth beneath the southeastern margin of the Tibetan Plateau, in sharp contrast to low-velocity anomalies in the upper mantle beneath the Songpan-Ganzi Fold System and the Northwest Qiangtang Block. At depths of the lower crust and uppermost mantle, a layer with low Vp and low Vs (1%-2%) is revealed under a region west of the Yangtze Platform, which may reflect the ductile flow in the lower crust. Our results indicate that the seismotectonics in the NSSZ is affected significantly by the ductile flow in the lower crust and strong heterogeneities in the upper mantle under southwest China in addition to the dominant role of the India-Asia collision.

The Yidun Island Arc in the Three Rivers (Jinsha River, Lancang River, Nujiang River) region of southwestern China is one of the most important Kuroko-type volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits (VMS) in China. Intra-arc rifting of Yidun Island occurred during the Late Carnian-Norian when VMS deposits such as the Gacun Pb-Zn-Cu deposit were formed. A bivalve fauna was found in fine-grained tuffaceous slate and in mineralized tuffaceous siltstone containing very high contents of Pb (45.01-103.37 ppm) and Zn (135.78-300.03 ppm) of the upper Tumugou Formation in the Changtai-Gacun volcanic-sedimentary rift basin. Stratigraphically, the bivalve-bearing beds are equivalents of the Gacun Pb-Zn-Cu deposits. The diversity of this bivalve fauna is very low. It consists mainly of the thin-shelled, epibyssate suspension-feeding bivalves Pergamidia eumenea and Parapergamidia changtaiensis, the burrowing large, elongated, suspension-feeding Trigonodus keuperinus and Unionites? sp., and occasional specimens of the endobyssate suspension-feeding Trigonodus? sp. and the deep burrowing suspension-feeding Pleuromya markiamensis. Individuals of the first four taxa are so abundant that the specimens are sometimes concentrated in shell beds, probably indicating a gregarious habit. This bivalve fauna is associated with internal moulds of cylindrical, slightly conical tubes most likely produced by a worm-shaped organism. Composition, morphology, diversity, and high abundance of this fauna, chemical features of the surrounding sediment, and the tectonic setting all suggest that this bivalve fauna lived in a deep-water environment in or around a hydrothermal vent system. © 2011 Science China Press and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

The Kejie pluton is located in the north of the Changning-Menglian suture zone. The rock types are mainly biotite-granite. Zircon LA-TCP-MS U-Pb dating indicates that the Kejie pluton emplaced at about 80-77 Ma, Late Cretaceous. The Kejie pluton samples are characterized by high Si02 (71.68%-72.47%), K20 (4.73%-S.54%), total alkali (K20 + Na20 = 8.21%-8.53%), K20/Na20 ratios (1.36-1.94) and low P205 (0.13%-0.17%), with AICNK of 1.025-1.055; enriched in U, Th, and K, depleted in Ba, Nb, Sr, Ti, P and Eu. They are highly fractionated, slightly peraluminous 1-type granite. The two samples of the Kejie pluton give a large variation of eut{t) values (-5.04 to 1.96) and Hf isotope crustal model ages of 1.16-1.5 Ga. Zircon Hf isotopes and zircon saturation temperatures of whole-rock (801 °C-823°C) show that the mantle-derived materials maybe have played a vital role in the generation of the Kejie pluton. The Kejie pluton was most likely generated in a setting associated with the eastward subduction of the neo-Tethys ocean, where intrusion of mantle wedge basaltic magmas in the crust caused the anatexis of the latter, forming hybrid melts, which subsequently experienced high-degree fractional crystallization. © 2014 Geological Society of China.

Element Ce shows variable valences in the nature, which accounts for the decoupling between La-Ce and Sm-Nd isotopic system. In addition to a radiometric application, the La-Ce system thus sheds new light on a set of studies such as crust recycling in mantle components, oxidation events during outer sphere evolution of the Earth and metallogenesis. This paper consists of two parts. The first part summarizes the application status of the La-Ce system, its analytical problem faced as well as developing trends in experimental technique and geological application. The second half describes a new chemical procedure for La-Ce separation and purification. Analytical results for some USGS standards and some gabbroic rocks from the Neoproterozoic Huangling complex, interior of the Yangtze craton, are also reported.

SIMS U-Pb zircon ages for rhyolite porphyries, and geochemical and Nd isotopic data are reported for rhyolite porphyries and the related basalts from the Songjiapo Formation of the Minle copper deposit of Yunnan Province, SW China. The aims are to constrain the origin and petrogenesis of these rocks. The basalts are commonly high in Fe 2O 3 , Al 2O 3 and Na 2O contents. In the Harker diagrams, MgO, CaO and P 2O 5 contents of the basalts decrease with increasing SiO 2 contents. These rocks with high ε Nd(t) values (+2.9 - +3.5), are characterized by relatively low total REE contents (50.1 X 10 -6 - 60.6 X 10 -6) with relatively flat REE patterns in the chondrite-normalized diagram and with slightly negative Nb-Ta and positive Sr anomalies in the primitive-normalized spidergram. The parental magma for the basalts exhibits affinity with a sub-alkaline basaltic magma generated by melting of a depleted, plagioclase-rich and garnet-free mantle source in the spinel field. It is suggested that the basalts originated by fractional crystallization of the parental magma plus varying degrees of crustal contamination. Cameca SIMS zircon U-Pb dating indicates that the rhyolite porphyries were emplaced at 234.8 ±2.4Ma. These rocks have high SiO 2, ( Na 2O + K 2O) and Al 2O 3 contents compared with the normal rhyolites, and are enriched in LREE and show relatively flat HREE patterns with slightly negative Eu anomalies in the chondrite-normalized diagram and significantly negative Nb-Ta, Sr, P and Ti anomalies in the primitive mantle-normalized spidergrams. The rhyolite porphyries display geochemical characteristics of I-type granites and exhibit variably initial ε Nd(t) values ranging from -1.9 to -0.51. The parental magma for these rocks exhibits affinity with a mildly alkaline intermediate to felsic magma, which was probably generated by partial melting of the regional Mesoproterozoic to Neoproterozoic mafic to intermediate lower crust and thereafter mixed with small amounts of the Middle Triassic basaltic magmas. The rhyolite porphyries were then formed by extensive crystal fractionation of the mildly alkaline magma. The basalts and the rhyolite porphyries from the Minle copper deposit display the characteristics of are volcanic rocks, which possibly formed in a late-collisonal to post-collisional environment.

Seismic imaging together with global positioning system (GPS) and crustal stress data analyses show that the Mw7.9 2008 Wenchuan earthquake occurred within a distinct area of high crustal stress (~. 17.5. MPa) and high Poisson's ratio (7-10%) anomalies centered on the Longmen-Shan (Shan means Mountain in Chinese) tectonic fault belt. Low P-wave and S-wave velocities in the southwest (SW) segment contrast with high-velocity anomalies in the central portion (CP) and northeast (NE) segment within the uppermost ~. 15. km depths along the tectonic fault belt, though a presumably ductile zone with low-velocity anomalies separates the CP and NE segment. The rupture initiated near the southwestern end of the CP at a zone of high Poisson's ratio (σ) which extends down into the lower crust. These low-velocity and high-σ anomalies immediately below the source hypocenter, together with the high crustal stress, indicate the presence of high-pressure fluids from the lower crust, which might have reduced the mechanical strength of the fractured rock matrix and triggered the earthquake. Our study suggests that the structural heterogeneity and high crustal stress played an important role in the nucleation of the Wenchuan earthquake and its rupture process. © 2010.

The stratigraphic sequence of E'bian Group in Western Yangtze Block is a debatable topic and its age has not yet been constrained by geological chronology for a long time. So, in this paper through the composite analysis of lithological characteristics, sedimentary sequences and their contact relations with its formation or intervals of the Proterozoic E'bian Group in the Western Yangtze Block, the strata location of the Lanbaoping Formation in E'bian Group was determined preliminarily. It should be put in the upper original E'bian Group, representing a new beginning of tectonic cycle and it is not a part of the E'bian Group. The obtained, for the first time, zircon SHRIMP U-Pb age of about (779.3±15.7) Ma from the Lower Lanbaoping Formation volcanic tuff proved it to be the Neoproterozoic, not the mid-Proterozoic. Two single-particle zircon SHRIMP U-Pb ages of about (2737±30) Ma and (2480±29) Ma demonstrate that an old Neoarchean crystallized base may have existed in E'bian-Jinkouhe District in the Western Yangtze Block. These results will contribute to the further research on the E'bian Group in the Western Yangtze Block.

This paper studied in detail the host rock of granodiorite body ( granodiorite ) and its mafic microgranular enclave (diorite). The dating results of granodiorite and diorite were separately 234.6 ± 1. 8Ma and 233.5 ± 1.6Ma. The geochemical research of granodiorite and diorite indicated the granodiorite was enriched in K2O, Na2O, Al 2O3 and K2O > Na2O, and its A/CNK average was 0.96. The diorite was enriched in K2O, Na2O, Al2O3, MgO, but K2 0 < Na2O, and its A/CNK average was 0. 72. The REE gross of granodiorite was lower than diorite, and the LREE and HREE fractionationg of granodiorite and diorite was distinct. The partition curve was right-deviation and LREE-enriched, and they were enriched in LILEs and depleted in HFS elements such as Nb, Ta etc. Their Mg# (38. 8 ∼65. 8) values were comparatively high. Zircon laser ablation LA-ICP-MS U-Pb analyses indicated the granodiorite was emplaced at 234. 6 ± 1. 8Ma with average 176Hf/177Hf values of 0. 282383 and negative εHf(t) values of - 8. 28, and the diorite was emplaced at 233. 5 ± 1.6Ma with average 176Hf/ 177 Hf values of 0.282287 and negative εHf(t) values of - 11. 79. The granodiorite (host rock) and diorite (MME) were I-type granites and originate from the crust magama, and formed in the geological background of spread after the arc-continent collision. According to the evolvement history of regional tectonic and the forming age of magmatic rocks, we considered that Jinshajiang junction zone had been jointing after arc-continent collision about 255Ma.
