|Abstract:||Geochemical and stable isotopic characteristics of thirteen samples taken from Paleoproterozoic Fecho do Funil Formation, Quadril atero Ferrífero, Brazil have been analyzed to investigate the depositional conditions and source of rare earth elements (REEs) in Cumbi quarry dolomites. The major oxides such as CaO and MgO show variable compositions ranging from 20 to 29 wt % and 14e21 wt % respectively in most of the samples. The contents of loss on ignition (LOI) are lower (26e42 wt %) than that of the pure dolomite (~48 wt %). These mass discrepancies are compensated by other oxides including Al2O3 (1.9 e18.7 wt %), Fe2O3 (1.2e6.1 wt %), and K2O (0.5e6.8 wt %) that had been incorporated into the dolomite samples by the contamination of terrigenous input. Further, SREE contents (20e101 ppm) display significant variation that also corroborate with contamination of studied samples by detrital materials. The regression lines of SREE against Al2O3 (R2 ¼ 0.96), Fe2O3 (R2 ¼ 0.65), Ni (R2 ¼ 0.94), Cr (R2 ¼ 0.95), Th (R2 ¼ 0.98), and Sc (R2 ¼ 0.98) show positive correlation which is probably associated with the input of terrigenous materials during the deposition of Cumbi quarry dolomites. On the other hand, a negative correlation between SREE and CaO combined with a large variation in Y/Ho (27e50) is also interpreted as the sea-water like REE patterns have been masked by the contribution of variable amounts of terrigenous materials in Cumbi quarry dolomites. All the dolomite samples analyzed from the Fecho do Funil Formation exhibit a subtle negative cerium anomaly (Ce/Ce* ¼ 0.85e0.95). The dolomites from Cumbi quarry e Fecho do Funil Formation show narrow variations in Eu anomalies (Eu/Eu* ¼ 1.02 to 1.25). The positive correlation between Eu with Zr, Th and Y supports the non diagenetic influence on this element (R2 ¼ 0.94, 0.98, 0.84 respectively). Eu contents, in this study show significant positive correlation with Al2O3 (R2¼0.96), suggesting the detrital origin. The d13CVPDB (þ6.0 to þ7.2‰) and d18OVPDB ( 10.9 to 10.4‰) values in our samples display a narrow range which are identical to those shown by successions, characterized by positive carbon excursions, deposited during the Lomagundi event. We infer that the elevated carbon isotope values of the Fecho do Funil dolomites likely reflect primary carbon isotope compositions.|
