Abstract

""The East Tenda Shear Zone is the regional structure that marks the Alpine overthrusting of the Ligurian–. Piedmontese ocean onto the Variscan Corsica. We present the first report of a Na-pyroxene (acmite)–. rutile-bearing assemblage from a phyllonitic shear zone that occurs within the gneissic lithologies of the East. Tenda Shear Zone. Acmite hosts inclusions of Na-amphibole and titanite, and is rimmed by retrogressive. biotite. Forward modelling of the shear zone assemblages in the NCKFMASTho chemical system indicates. a cold burial–exhumation path (palaeogeothermal gradient <10 °C km−1) and a metamorphic climax with. minimum pressure of 1.2 GPa and temperatures of 350–400 °C. U–Pb thermal ionization mass spectrometry. analyses on synkinematic rutile yield a 3D array with an age of 48 ± 18 Ma (MSWD 7.3), whereas coexisting. acmite–phengite and coatings of oxides or sulphides provide an intercept at 54 ± 8 Ma (MSWD = 48)..
