Abstract

Baddeleyite is a significant mineral successfully applied in the U-Pb geochronology for the precise dating of mafic rocks from layered intrusions with the platinum group element (PGE) and Cu-Ni mineralization. The Fennoscandian Shield hosts several layered Pt-Pd, Co-Cr-Ni, and Ti-V occurrences in the Northern (Karelian) and Southern (Karelian-Finnish) belts. The aim of this study is to estimate the content and distribution of rare earth elements (REE) in baddeleyite and to calculate temperatures (Т,˚С) of the U-Pb system closure and baddeleyite crystallization compared to zircon from Cu-Ni and Pt-Pd deposits in the north-eastern Fennoscandian Shield. For the first time, baddeleyite crystals from Cu-Ni (Monchepluton) and Pt-Pd (Monchetundra) reefs of the Monchegorsk ore area have been studied in situ by the laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) to measure the U-Pb age of formation and the REE content.
