Resumo

The Uatuma silicic large igneous province (SLIP) has covered about 1,500,000 krn(2) of the Amazonian craton at ca. 1880 Ma, when the Columbia/Nuna supercontinent has been assembled. Paleomagnetic and geochronological data for this unit were obtained for the Santa Rosa and Sobreiro Formations in the Carajas Province, southwestern Amazonian craton (Central-Brazil Shield). AF and thermal demagnetizations revealed northern (southern) directions with high upward (downward) inclinations (component SF1), which passes a `B' reversal test, and is carried by magnetite and SD hematite with high-blocking temperature. This component is present on well-dated 1877.4 +/- 4.3 Ma (U-Pb zrn - LA-ICPMS) rhyolitic lava flows, providing the SF1 key paleomagnetic pole (Q=6) located at 319.7 degrees E, 24.7 degrees S (A(95) = 16.9 degrees). A second southwestern (northeastern) direction with low inclination (Component SF2) was obtained for a well-dated 1853.7 +/- 62 Ma (U-Pb zrn - LA-ICPMS) dike of the Velho Guilherme Suite. This component also appears as a secondary component in the host rhyolites of the Santa Rosa Fm and andesites of the Sobreiro Fm at the margins of the dike previously dated. Its primary origin is confirmed by a positive baked contact test, where a Velho Guilherme dike crosscuts the 1880 Ma andesite from the Sobreiro Formation. The corresponding SF2 key pole is located at 220.1 degrees E, 31.1 degrees S (A(95) = 5) and is classified with a reliability criterion Q=7. The large angular distance between the almost coeval (difference of similar to 25 Ma) SF1 and SF2 poles implies high plate velocities (similar to 393 cm/yr) which are not consistent with modern plate tectonics. The similar significant discrepancy of paleomagnetic poles with ages between 1880 and 1860 Ma observed in several cratons could be explained by a true polar wander (TPW) event. This event is the consequence of the reorganization of the whole mantle convection, and is supported by paleomagnetic reconstructions at 1880 Ma and 1860 Ma and also by geological/geochronological evidence.
