1 Introduction The Paraná Basin is a part of the Paraná-Angola-Namibia (Etendeka) Province (PAEP [ 1 ]). It is characterized by Early Cretaceous flood basalts (tholeiites) and dyke swarms (130–135 Ma, according to refs. [ 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 ] and references therein) associated with alkaline and alkaline–carbonatite complexes of Early Cretaceous to Tertiary age [ 6 , 7 , 8 , 9 , 10 , 11 , 12 , 13 , 14 ]. The emplacement of these complexes, in and around the PAEP, occurred mainly along tectonic structures active at least since the Early Mesozoic ( Figure 1 ), and up to

1 Introduction Carbonatite melts are known to form by very low degrees of partial melting of the carbonated olivine-rich (peridotitic) mantle forming interconnected melts at fractions lower than 0.05 wt%. The grain size is considered to be of the order of 1 mm with low diahedral wetting angles (~28°) and low viscosities [ 1 , 2 ]. Such mantle is envisaged as a veined and metasomatically enriched source region [ 3 ]. The carbonatitic magma so generated represent ionic solutions and hence are unpolymerised melts with lower viscosity (~ 5 × 10 −3 poise), high

Moreover, some economically important deposits of the rare- earth elements and niobium are hosted by carbonatites (Bell 1989). Although there is no doubt that the ultimate source of carbonatites is in the mantle, a variety of processes may be involved in their formation and differentiation. Carbonatite mag- mas may be generated by partial
