RESEARCH: Dating detrital zircons of metasedimentary rocks of the Minas Supergroup

PROJECT SUMMARY: investigate the sources of various strata in the Minas Supergroup via U-Pb dating of detrital zircons

The goal of my research is to produce a systematic dataset of detrital zircons for the low grade metasedimentary rocks that form the Moeda Syncline. Determining the age distribution of the detrital zircon will give new insights into the sources of sediments, stratigraphy and main tectonic structures of the Minas Basin
