Primary Data on U/Pb-Isotope Ages and Lu/Hf-Isotope Geochemical Systematization of Detrital Zircons from the Lopatinskii Formation (Vendian–Cambrian Transition Levels) and the Tectonic Nature of Teya–Chapa Depression (Northeastern Yenisei Ridge)
The main results are presented on U/Pb-isotope dating of 100 detrital zircons and, selectively, on the Lu/Hf-isotope system of 43 grains from sandstones of the Lopatinskii formation (the lower stratigraphic level of the Chingasan group). Ages from 896 ± 51 to 2925 ± 38 Ma were obtained with a pronounced maximum of ~1890 Ma in the curve of probability density, along with εHf estimates from +8.4 to–15.1, which allow one to throw doubt upon the molasse nature of the Lopatinskii formation.
