The application of Fission-Track Thermochronology (FTT), and U-Pb and Lu-Hf isotope analyses on the same zircon grains revealed the provenance and thermal/tectonic events related to the build-up and evolution of the Bauru Basin filling in Minas Gerais, Brazil. The U-Pb on detrital zircon reveals that the potential source areas were dominated by Brasiliano outcrops and subordinately, Paleoproterozoic, Mesoproterozoic, and Carboniferous sources. Positive epsilon Hf(t) signatures can characterize the Goias magmatic Arc and older adjacent terranes as the most probable region that supplied the Bauru Basin. The FTT data display five main age peaks at 569, 337, 235, 132, and 83 Ma. They record the exhumation and denudation processes of Brasiliano and Gondwanide orogens and later, the Serra Geral magmatism of the South American Platform. A younger subordinate age (100-80 Ma) is recorded, and it may be associated with intense alkaline magmatism that occurred during the initial stages of basin deposition. (AU)
