Paper Title:
Gabbro in Wanning, Hainan Island: LA-ICP-MS Chronometry and its Geological Significance
  Abstract

Gabbro is mostly the result of partly melting from mantle rock, and its formation is usually related with extension tectonic, the research work on Triassic gabbro from Hainan island has important instruction significance to its tectonic background. System chronometry and geochemistry research on hornblende gabbro in Wanning area was made in this paper, and its tectonic significance is to be discussed. The LA-ICP-MS zircon U-Pb age dating result shows that the gabbro in Wanning area was formed in 241±1.7Ma. The major and trace elements characteristic shows that the rocks belong to alkaline series, enrichment in light REE (LREE/HREE=7.22-8.5) and LILE Rb, Th, and Sr, Ba while depleted in HFSE Nb, Ta and Zr, Hf. The Wanning gabbro exhibits a narrow range of εNd(t) values (1.59-1.76), and a broad rang 87Sr/86Sr initial ratios(0.70633-0.70964). The tectonic background of Wanning gabbro is intracontinental extensional setting, and its geochemistry characteristic declare that there was an ancient ocean basin existed, and maybe one branch of the ancient eastern Tethys ocean. The formation age and tectonic setting declare that the ancient ocean basin was disappeared at least before 241Ma.
