Abstract (in english)
   Here we present reconnaissance geochemical data from the Batatal Formation, Quadrilátero Ferrífero of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The Batatal Formation is a pelitic carbonaceous sequence that grades upward into the banded iron formation (itabirite) of the Palaeoproterozoic Caue Formation. Our data indicate that the Batatal sediments accumulated some Mo in an Fe-rich basin under anoxic conditions with frequent euxinic periods. Measurements for Mo-isotopic compositions gave heavy ?98/95Mo values (1.27-1.43?), which are comparable to those from the ~2.5-Ga Mt. McRae Shale, Hamersley Basin, Western Australia.
