Translucent heavy minerals from siliciclastic sediments of the Cambrian and Devonian age, SE Moravia, Czech Republic, Case study of provenance and sedimentology
Lower Cambrian and Middle Devonian siliciclastic sediments (arcoses, sandstones and conglomerates) form more than 2 km thick sedimentary cover of Brunovistulicum (Precambrian crustal blocks). Several facies identifying similar depositional environments were found both in the Cambrian and Lower and Middle Devonian siliciclastics. There were repeated transitions between the terrestrial and shallow marine conditions. The chemical composition of detrital garnets and tourmalines sampled both from the Cambrian and the Devonian sediments reflect similar provenance. Metasediments, mainly gneisses and schists as the main source rocks, were identified for the oldest parts of the Lower Cambrian sedimentary successions. Higher within the Lower Cambrian successions, a gradual decrease of granitoids in the source material was proved. There is a distinct hiatus between Cambrian and Devonian sediments. The composition of translucent heavy mineral assemblage in the Devonian sediments is strongly influenced by redeposition from older (Cambrian) sediments above the hiatus.
