Geologica Acta
Geologica Acta (ISSN 1695-6133 / 1696-5728 e-ISSN) is an institutional open access journal, international and a general profile of Earth Sciences. The journal welcomes articles from both conceptual and regional levels, with special emphasis on areas of the Mediterranean, South America and the Caribbean, but without considering contributions from any region. Also encouraged the publication of theme issues that give the results of projects and international scientific meetings.

14 p, 3.2 MB Time lag between metamorphism and crystallization of anatectic granites (Córdoba, Argentina) / D'Eramo, F.J. (Universidad Nacional de Río Cuarto. Departamento de Geología) ; Esteban Guzman, José Julián (Universidad del País Vasco. Departamento de Geodinámica) ; Demartis, M. (Universidad Nacional de Río Cuarto.

(Universidad Nacional de Río Cuarto. Departamento de Geología)
SHRIMP and LA-ICP-MS analyses carried out on zircons from the Río de los Sauces granite revealed their metamorphic and igneous nature. The metamorphic zircons yielded an age of 537±4. 8 (2σ)Ma that probably predates the onset of the anatexis during the Pampean orogeny. [...]

17 p, 7.5 MB Age of the basement beneath the Mesozoic Lusitanian Basin revealed by granitic xenoliths from the Papôa volcanic breccia (West Iberia) / Pereira, M.F. (Universidade de Évora. Instituto de Ciências da Terra) ; Gama, C. (Universidade de Évora. Instituto de Ciências da Terra) ; Silva, J.B. (Universidade de Lisboa. Departamento de Geologia) ; Dias da Silva, Í. (Universidade de Lisboa. Departamento de Geologia)
The dyke of the Papôa volcanic breccia cross-cutting the Lower Jurassic sequence of the Lusitanian Basin (West Iberia) contains granitic xenoliths. In this study, for the first time, U-Th-Pb zircon analysis of two xenoliths yielded 298 ± 4 Ma for biotite granite and of 292 ± 2 Ma for two-mica granite, indicating that the pre-Mesozoic basement of the Lusitanian Basin includes Permian intrusions.
