Resumo


Granitic magmatism related to the orogenic stages of the Araçuaí Belt took place at 595-575 Ma, and are represented by two distinct suites. One is composed of I-type granitoids and includes the following plutons: Brasilândia (595±3 Ma), São Vitor (576±4 Ma) and Guarataia (574±2 Ma). The other suite comprises S-type granites like the Ataléia (591±5 Ma) and Wolf (582±5 Ma) plutons. After a long period of magmatic quiescence, a batholith composed of the Caladão granite and Padre Paraíso charnockite intruded at 519±2 Ma. This magmatic episode is probably associated to the collapse of the orogen.
