Abstract [en]

Oscillatory-zoned euhedral single zircons from the upper Sandbian (Upper Ordovician) Kinnekulle K-bentonite exposed in a hillock at Paaskula in Estonia and at the type locality on Mt Kinnekulle in Sweden were dated in a grain-by-grain manner by laser ablation-inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer. The U-Pb (weighed mean) ages of the 25 grains from Mt Kinnekulle and 24 grains from Paaskula are 453.4 +/- 6.6 and 454.9 +/- 4.9Ma, respectively. This study provides the first ca. 454Ma (late Sandbian) age for the Ordovician K-bentonite in northern Estonia and confirmed its correlation with the type Kinnekulle bed across the Baltic Sea.
