Abstract

The Cana Brava, Niquelândia and Barro Alto complexes (Goiás, central Brazil) are three of the largest mafic-ultramafic layered complexes in the world and their origin has been a matter of debate for several decades. One hypothesis suggests that Niquelândia and Barro Alto were both formed by two distinct igneous events at 1.3 Ga and at 790Ma and were later overlapped during tectonic exhumation at 650 Ma; according to this reconstruction Cana Brava belongs to the youngest intrusion at 790 Ma. A second hypothesis suggests that the three complexes formed during the same event. Here we provide new U-Pb SHRIMP-II zircon ages for the Cana Brava and Barro Alto complexes, constraining their intrusion age to the Neoproterozoic (between 770 and 800 Ma), coeval with Niquelândia. A review of new and literature ages indicate that these complexes formed during a single igneous event andwere notmodified by regional metamorphism.We propose that the complexes represent fragments of the larger Tonian Goiás Stratiform Complex, which was likely part of a back-arc environment connected to the formation of the GoiásMagmatic Arc at about 790Ma, later disrupted and accreted to the São Francisco craton.
