Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
Mg isotopes are used to better understand the genesis of hydrothermal saddle dolomite cements in Lower Paleozoic successions in Canada. These cements occur in fault-bounded dolostones that overlay lithologically diverse basement rocks; Ordovician dolomite lies over the Precambrian craton,whereas the Silurian and Devonian dolomites overlay a succession of tectonically accreted sedimentary, volcanic and ultramafic units of Cambrian to Ordovician age. Lower Silurian saddle dolomites have the most negative d26MgDSM3 values of our dataset (-3.25 to -1.13permil), and plot in two distinct groups: a strongly negative subset that characterizes higher temperature (175 °C) dolomites, and a less negative subset for lower temperature (153 °C) dolomites. Upper Ordovician saddle dolomites precipitated at significantly lower temperatures (102 °C), and their d26MgDSM3 values range from -1.26 to -0.71permil. Lower Devonian saddle dolomites formed at very high temperature (350 °C) and have d26MgDSM3 values ranging from -1.29 to -0.78permil. No experimental data on high temperature (100-350 °C) fluid-dolomite Mg isotope fractionation factors have been published, and recent research suggests that no significant fractionation occurs between diagenetic fluids and dolomites at high temperatures in closed to semi-closed diagenetic systems. Our results indicate that the isotopic signature of diagenetic fluid is the primary control for the d26MgDSM3 values in these high-temperature dolomites.
