AbstractGarnet-bearing mafic granulites and amphibolites from the Hongliuxia area of the southern Dunhuang orogenic belt, northwestern China, commonly occur as lenses or boudinages enclosed within metapelite or marble, which represent the block-in-matrix feature typical of orogenic melange. Three to four generations of metamorphic mineral assemblages are preserved in these rocks. In the high-pressure amphibolites, prograde mineral assemblages (M1) occur as inclusions (hornblende + plagioclase + quartz +/- chlorite +/- epidote +/- ilmenite) preserved within garnet porphyroblasts, and formed at 550-590 degrees C and 7.7-9.2 kbar based on geothermobarometry. The metamorphic peak mineral assemblages (M2) are composed of garnet + hornblende + plagioclase + quartz + clinopyroxene, as well as titanite + zircon + rutile + apatite as accessory minerals in the matrix, and are estimated to have formed at 640-720 degrees C and 14.1-16.0 kbar. The first retrograde assemblages (M3) are characterized by "white-eye socket" symplectites (hornblende + plagioclase + quartz +/- biotite +/- epidote +/- magnetite) rimming garnet porphyroblasts, which formed at the expense of the garnet rims and adjacent matrix minerals during the decompression stage under P-T conditions of 610-630 degrees C and 5.6-11.8 kbar. The second retrograde assemblages (M4) are intergrowths of actinolite and worm-like quartz produced by the breakdown of the matrix hornblendes, and formed under P-T conditions of similar to 490 degrees C and similar to 2.8 kbar. For the high-pressure mafic granulites, the prograde assemblages (M1) are represented by plagioclase + quartz preserved within the garnet porphyroblasts. The metamorphic peak assemblages (M2) are garnet + matrix minerals (clinopyroxene + plagioclase + quartz + hornblende + rutile + zircon) and were estimated to have formed at similar to 680 degrees C and similar to 15.4 kbar. The retrograde assemblages (M3) are characterized by fine-grained patches. of hornblende + plagioclase + quartz +/- rimming the garnet porphyroblasts, as Well as hornblende rimming clinopyroxene in the matrix, and were inferred to have formed at similar to 620 degrees C and similar to 4.2 kbar. For the metapelitic gneiss, the metamorphic peak assemblages are the garnet porphyroblasts plus the matrix minerals (biotite + plagioclase + quartz + ilmenite + zircon), which were estimated to have formed at similar to 630 degrees C and similar to 8.9 kbar. The mafic granulites and amphibolites record fairly similar clockwiSe P-T paths that include nearly isothermal decompression processes, which suggest that they experienced subduction and subsequent rapid tectonic exhumation. SIMS and LA-ICP-MS U-Pb dating of zircons and 40Ar/39Ar dating of hornblende suggest that the metamorphism occurred at similar to 430-390 Ma, Field occurrences, different protolith ages of the mafic granulites and amphibolites, and the considerable gap in peak P-T conditions between the amphibolite and mafic granulite boudinages and their country rock may suggest a melange accumulation process during the Paleozoic caused by the Silurian-Devonian orogeny, which is possibly associated with the closure of the Liuyuan ocean, a branch of the Paleo-Asian ocean near the southern Central Asian Orogenic Belt.
