Zircon U-Pb and reassessed zircon fission track ages of Miocene Mizunami and Iwamura Groups in the southeastern part of Gifu Prefecture, central Japan

Sasao, Eiji; Danhara, Toru*; Iwano, Hideki*; Hirata, Takafumi*

Here U-Pb and reassessed fission track (FT) ages are presented for samples from the Miocene Mizunami and Iwamura groups in the southeastern Gifu Prefecture, central Japan. The U-Pb ages of three tuff samples coincide with the reassessed FT ages within the error range. These new U-Pb and reassessed FT ages are consistent with those reported in previous microfossil and paleomagnetic studies, which indicate the following depositional history: The Hongo and Akeyo formations of the Mizunami Group were deposited at ~19-18 Ma and ca. 18 Ma, respectively, and the lower part of the Toyama Formation of the Iwamura Group was deposited ca. 18 Ma.
