Abstract

The nature and geodynamic setting of Inner Makran ophiolites (SE Iran) are controversial and are the focus of a growing debate. The Fannuj-Maskutan ophiolite complex (central Inner Makran) is made up of lherzolites, harzburgites, layered and isotropic gabbros and diabase dikes and basaltic lavas. Here we present new textural description, mineral and whole-rock chemistry of peridotites together with bulk geochemistry of magmatic mafic rocks and U-Pb geochronology and Lu-Hf isotopes of inherited zircons in gabbros, with the aim to reconstruct the petrogenesis of the Fannuj-Maskutan ophiolite. The results indicate to a subduction-metasomatized depleted mantle source experienced 10–20% of partial melting. A transition from IAT-gabbros to E-MORB-basalts is also outlined. We interpret the obtained results as evidence for the Fannuj-Maskutan genesis in a supra-subduction zone (SSZ) basin developed in the Iranian cadomian crust as indicated by the presence of inherited Cadomian zircons (ca. 515 Ma, εHf(t): −13.6 – +11.2). Comparing the Fannuj-Maskutan ophiolites to well-known SSZ-systems such as the South Sandwich SSZ, and integrating with the existing literature on Inner Makran ophiolite belt we interpret the Fannuj-Maskutan ophiolite as a part of a major SSZ-basin opened in the Iranian cadomian crust and evolved during the Neotethys subduction under Central Iran.
