The Precambrian Sushui Complex in Zhongtiao Mountain is composed principally of Xiyao and Zhaizi TTG gneisses, Henglingguan and Beiyu calc-alkaline granitoids.SHRIMP zircon U-Pb dating for Xiyao TTG gneiss yield the weighted mean ~(207)Pb/~(206)pb age of 2536±8Ma,revealing that it was formed in the Neoarchean.In-situ zircon Lu-Hf isotopic analyses of Xiyao and Zhaizi TTG gneisses and Henglingguan-Beiyu calc-alkaline granitoids show that the magmatic zircons have positiveε_(Hf)(t) values,and theseε_(Hf)(t) values are plotted within the revolution areas of the 2600～3100Ma old continental crust in the age vs.ε_(Hf)(t) diagrams. The analytical spots of three inherited zircon cores from the Beiyu calc-alkaline granitoid yield a weighted mean ~(207)Pb/~(206)pb age of 2633±84Ma,and theε_(Hf)(t) values of these inherited cores of magmatic zircon grains are,-2.0～+5.6.The characteristics of zircon SHRIMP U-Pb ages and Hf isotope compositions of these TTG gneisses and calc-alkaline granitoids from the Precambrian Sushui Complex indicate that they were possibly formed in the Neoarchean to Paleoproterozoic tectonic settings of Andes-type continent margin, and the magmas could be derived from the partial mehing of juvenile crust materials from the depleted mantle and more older continental crust materials.
