Monazite is a light rare earth element LREE -bearing phosphate mineral. Crystals typically contain distinct chemical domains, each of which represent successive growth thru geologic history. Electron microprobe analysis can characterize the geometry and U-Th- total Pb age for each domain. This kind of data allow the growth of monazite to be related to geologic events affecting the host rock. Monazite is common in pelitic and psammitic metamorphic rocks at greenschist facies and above where it is often recognized as inclusions in porphyroblasts but may also be in direct connection with the matrix.
Locating monazite grains can be done on standard geological thin sections via x-ray compositional mapping. Figure 7A reveals a cerium x-ray map on a quartzite sample from the Cheyenne belt. Peaks in cerium content may correlate to large monazite grains. Figure 8 shows compositional zonation on selected grains identified in figure 7. These individual domains likely represent successive generations of monazite growth and can be targeted for crystallization dates.
Dating monazite follows the U-Th total Pb age method which is described elsewhere in the website.
We present an improved U–Pb age dating method for zircon and monazite crystals using nm excimer laser ablation and / nm femtosecond laser.
Jercinovic University of Massachusetts. Assumption: No non-radiogenic lead in monazite or at least very little. If you can precisely measure U, Th, and Pb in ppm , you can solve this equation iteratively for lead to obtain an age. Map thin section with the microprobe Ce, Fe, Y to find all monazite crystals. See an abstract of Williams et al. This sample is currently used at UMass to test analytical precision. This sample is a sillimanite nodule-quartz-muscovite schist.
The outcrop it was taken from is part of a screen of supracrustal rocks intruded by the1. For further background information, see an abstract of Read et al. The probe data overall are consistent with the isotopic age, but with considerable variability see the data spreadsheet, and the grain maps and images for details. The probe data files have been organized into a spreadsheet modeled on the spreadsheet that Mike supplied that computes the ages.
Electron Microprobe Dating of Monazite
The sample, an osumilite-bearing ultra-high-temperature granulite from Rogaland, Norway, is characterized by complexly patchy zoned monazite crystals. Three chemical domains are distinguished as 1 a sulphate-rich core 0. This study illustrates that it is possible to discriminate different generations of monazite based on their S contents. From the petrological context, we propose that sulphate-rich monazite reflects high-temperature Fe—sulphide breakdown under oxidizing conditions, coeval with biotite dehydration melting.
Monazite may therefore reveal the presence of S in anatectic melts from high-grade terrains at a specific point in time and date S mobilization from a reduced to an oxidized state. This property can be used to investigate the mineralization potential of a given geological event within a larger orogenic framework.

(U-Th)/He Dating of Phosphates: Apatite, Monazite, and Xenotime
Polygenetic monazite grains in diverse Precambrian crystalline rocks from the Black Hills, South Dakota, have been analyzed in situ by ion and electron microprobe methods SHRIMP and EMP , to evaluate the accuracy and precision of EMP ages determined using a new analytical protocol that incorporates improved background acquisition and interference corrections. The monazite data set includes EMP chemical analyses from 26 grains in six metamorphic rocks, which resolve into 54 age-composition domains, and 31 SHRIMP isotopic ages from 13 grains in one of the rocks, with six grains microanalyzed in common by the two methods.
The data set also includes monazite-bearing garnets in two of the rocks, whose isotopic compositions were analyzed using Pb stepwise-leaching PbSL methods. The EMP data set is interpreted geologically as reflecting multiple episodes of monazite growth that are provisionally related to known metamorphic events in the Black Hills.

Hacker, M. Racek, R. Holder, A. Kylander-Clark, K. Schulmann, P. Monazite laser ablation—split-stream inductively coupled plasma—mass spectrometry LASS was used to date monazite in situ in Barrovian-type micaschists of the Moravian zone in the Thaya window, Bohemian Massif. Heterogeneously developed retrograde shear zones S 3 are marked by widespread chloritization, but minor chlorite is present in the studied samples.
Monazite is zoned, showing embayments and sharp boundaries between zones, with low Y in the staurolite zone, high-Y cores and low-Y rims in the kyanite zone, and high-Y cores, a low-Y mantle and a high-Y rim in the sillimanite zone. A systematic increase in heavy rare earth element HREE content with decreasing monazite age from to Ma is correlated with growth on the prograde P—T path; the drop in HREE of monazite at — Ma is assigned to recrystallization.

Monazite rim formation was facilitated via dissolution—reprecipitation of Neoproterozoic monazite. The monazite rims record garnet growth as they are depleted in Y 2 O 3 with respect to the Neoproterozoic cores. Rims are also characterized by relatively high SrO with respect to the cores. Results of the zircon depth-profiling revealed igneous zircon cores with crystallization ages typical for SNC metasediments.
These results show that both monazite and zircon experienced dissolution—reprecipitation under high-pressure conditions. Caledonian monazite formed coeval with garnet growth during subduction of the Vaimok Lens, whereas zircon rim formation coincided with monazite breakdown to apatite, allanite and clinozoisite during initial exhumation.

Monazite geochronology is a dating technique to study geological history using the mineral monazite. It is a powerful tool in studying the complex history of metamorphic rocks particularly, as well as igneous , sedimentary and hydrothermal rocks. The uniqueness of monazite geochronology comes from the high thermal resistance of monazite, which allows age information to be retained during the geological history.
Also, textures of monazite crystals may represent certain type of events. Therefore, direct sampling techniques with high spatial resolution are required, in order to study these tiny zones individually, without damaging the textures and zonations. The advantage of monazite geochronology is the ability to relate monazite compositions with geological processes. Finding the ages of compositional zones can mean finding the ages of geological processes. Monazite is a rare-earth-element phosphate mineral , with the chemical formula e.
It appears in a small amount as an accessory mineral in many igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks. These two elements are what make this mineral suitable for radiometric dating. In the radioactive processes, the three unstable parent isotopes decay into their respective stable daughter isotopes of Pb. Each following a decay chain consisting of alpha and beta decays , parent isotopes U, U and Th, decay into a series of intermediate daughter isotopes, and finally lead to stable isotopes, Pb, Pb and Pb, respectively.

Abstract : The km-long Redstone copper belt in the Mackenzie Mountains, Northwest Territories, Canada, is composed of a series of sediment-hosted stratiform copper SSC deposits hosted in Neoproterozoic fault-bounded intracontinental rift basins.
Mineralization at Coates Lake, the largest of these deposits, is concentrated within microbial laminite layers in the transition zone between underlying continental red beds of the Redstone River Formation and overlying marine carbonates of the Coppercap Formation. Disseminated cupriferous sulfides chalcopyrite, bornite, and chalcocite form part of a late diagenetic mineral association with dolomite, K-feldspar, albite, quartz, monazite, apatite, and pyrite that partially replaced detrital and early diagenetic minerals, including calcite cements, sulfate, and earlier generations of pyrite.
The absolute timing of mineralization was constrained by in situ U-Th-Pb chemical dating of monazite from four samples hosting disseminated SSC-type mineralization. The monazite have rounded, Th-U-heavy rare earth element-rich, detrital cores surrounded by Th-U-poor, light rare earth element-S-Sr-rich rims.
