Abstract

In the Dinaridic Ophiolite Belt, small (m-scale) to large (km-scale) blocks of Middle to Upper Triassic, and Middle to Upper Jurassic, more or less silicified bedded limestone are widely present, both as parts of para-autochthonous successions and as redeposited blocks in ophiolitic mélanges. The studied, approximately 230-m-thick succession in the wider area of Zlatar Mountain, is one of the most important para-autochthonous sections in the Serbian part of the Dinaridic Ophiolite Belt. The succession is made up of an alternation of redeposited carbonate toe-of-slope deposits, sand to clay-sized siliciclastic rocks, hemipelagic mudstones and radiolarite–spongiolite basin facies. In the lower part of the sequence, the components of the siliciclastic beds were derived mostly from low- and medium-grade metamorphic rocks. Similar components, together with sand-sized fragments of ophiolitic rocks, were encountered in small amounts in some redeposited carbonate beds. The chronostratigraphic assignment of the succession is based mostly on foraminifers, but age-diagnostic radiolarians and other microfossil groups were also considered. In the lower part of the probably continuous succession, a Norian–Rhaetian assemblage was recognized; a Sinemurian–Pliensbachian assemblage was encountered up-section, whereas the upper part of the succession could be assigned to the Bajocian–Bathonian. Considering the paleogeographic reconstructions and the analogies of age-equivalent sections, the succession records the depositional history of the Bosnian Basin during the Late Triassic to Middle Jurassic period and may contribute to the understanding of the evolution of the Adriatic margin of the Neotethys Ocean in the transition interval from passive to active margin stages.

N2 - In the Dinaridic Ophiolite Belt, small (m-scale) to large (km-scale) blocks of Middle to Upper Triassic, and Middle to Upper Jurassic, more or less silicified bedded limestone are widely present, both as parts of para-autochthonous successions and as redeposited blocks in ophiolitic mélanges. The studied, approximately 230-m-thick succession in the wider area of Zlatar Mountain, is one of the most important para-autochthonous sections in the Serbian part of the Dinaridic Ophiolite Belt. The succession is made up of an alternation of redeposited carbonate toe-of-slope deposits, sand to clay-sized siliciclastic rocks, hemipelagic mudstones and radiolarite–spongiolite basin facies. In the lower part of the sequence, the components of the siliciclastic beds were derived mostly from low- and medium-grade metamorphic rocks. Similar components, together with sand-sized fragments of ophiolitic rocks, were encountered in small amounts in some redeposited carbonate beds. The chronostratigraphic assignment of the succession is based mostly on foraminifers, but age-diagnostic radiolarians and other microfossil groups were also considered. In the lower part of the probably continuous succession, a Norian–Rhaetian assemblage was recognized; a Sinemurian–Pliensbachian assemblage was encountered up-section, whereas the upper part of the succession could be assigned to the Bajocian–Bathonian. Considering the paleogeographic reconstructions and the analogies of age-equivalent sections, the succession records the depositional history of the Bosnian Basin during the Late Triassic to Middle Jurassic period and may contribute to the understanding of the evolution of the Adriatic margin of the Neotethys Ocean in the transition interval from passive to active margin stages.
