dc.description.abstract Authigenic monazite nodules, increasingly recognized in Pre-Mesozoic mudrock successions, provide a means for dating diagenesis by exploiting trace uranium within the monazite structure. But, dating is difficult in practice because of zonation and abundant host rock inclusions. We report here a refined technique that has yielded a date of 419 +/- 14 Ma 2sigma MSWD = 1.2 for a 17-point Pb-Pb regression age from a Telychian (Silurian: late Llandovery) mudrock from central Wales. SHRIMP analyses of monazite nodules from the same horizon are consistent with this, and additionally demonstrate concordance of the U-Pb and Th-Pb systems. These results open the door to providing robust dates for a phase of burial-related diagenesis which, in Wales, seems approximately coincident with, and perhaps was related to, hydrocarbon expulsion. en
