Abstract [en]

We present eight Rb-Sr multi-mineral isochron ages showing that high-temperature metamorphic conditions and partial melting during top-to-the-NNE extensional shearing in the footwall of the Naxos metamorphic core complex lasted until about 14-12 Ma. One migmatite sample yielded an age of 14.34 ± 0.20 Ma (2σ uncertainties) for crystallization of migmatization related melt pockets. Four pegmatite samples, which are in part associated with partial melting of their host rocks, provided overlapping ages ranging from 13.81 to 12.23 Ma (age range includes 2σ uncertainties). Additional three samples of amphibolite-facies schist supplied Rb-Sr ages of around 14 Ma. Samples showing fluid- and/or deformation-assisted white mica and biotite reworking gave Rb-Sr mineral apparent ages of 11.1 ± 2.7, 10.16 ± 0.24, 9.7 ± 0.7 and 9.6 ± 0.15 Ma. These ages are interpreted to be associated with late stages of extensional shearing under greenschist-facies metamorphic conditions. Together with published U-Pb zircon ages of migmatite, and S- and I-type granite crystallization, the data indicate that presence of melt in the Naxos migmatite dome lasted for at least 7 Ma (from ~18 to ~11 Ma). This demonstrates that the thermal anomaly resulting from and aiding extensional deformation was a long-lived and not a transient event. We conclude that melt-assisted deformation facilitated large-scale displacement on the Naxos extensional fault system by drastically weakening the extending crust for long periods of time.
