The chronological information about carbonates is useful for modeling and enables forecast of geological and geochemical environmental changes by simulating. The U-Th-Pb dating method for carbonates which were formed at reducing environment remain to be established. The final goal of our study is to establish in situ U-Th-Pb dating method for carbonates which are filling cracks in pervious rock like fault rocks. In this study, the U-Th-Pb elemental and isotopic two-dimension distribution for an ammonite fossil were visualized by "Imaging" method using Laser-ablation ICP Mass Spectrometry. In U-Pb isotope analysis for carbonates in cracks of granites, we could not obtain significant U-Pb age data by the lack of uranium and influence of non-radiogenic common lead. When the concentration of lead is sufficiently high for the measurement, we obtained reliable isotopic data from carbonates and their lead isotopic composition reflected characteristic composition of their origin water.
