The complex mineralogical–geochemical and isotope–geochronological study of globular phyllosilicates (GPS) of glauconite–illite series from Upper Proterozoic deposits of the Olenek Uplift (North Siberia) was performed. The Rb–Sr and K–Ar dates of the post-diagenetic transformation stages of GPS from the Osorkhayata and Arymass formations of the Solooly series were obtained. These dates along with the model cation distribution in the structure of minerals and comparison of the model results with the Mössbauer and IR spectroscopic data give grounds to assume that the post-diagenetic transformation of crystalline structure of GPS and their chemical and isotope compositions occurred during the Pre-Debengda hiatus (1280–1250 Ma).

We are grateful to O.V. Yakovleva, who provided us with the data on Mössbauer spectroscopy and the 40Ar content in GPS samples; K.A. Stepanova for performing the classical silicate microanalysis; O.L. Galankina for the assistance in the performance of electron microprobe studies; and E.V. Pokrovskaya for X-ray study of minerals.

This work was performed within the framework of the Fundamental Research Programs of the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences no. 17 (project no. 0135-2018-0050) and no. 19 (project no. 0153-2018-0009), and the research and development project no. 0135-2016-0021, and was supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (project nos. 15-05-09095 and 17-05-00254).
