Black shales and Mn carbonates interbedded with glacial deposits from the Neoproterozoic of southern China exhibit extremely heavy values of pyrite S isotopes that may reflect the peculiar environment of Earth at this time. δ34S averages +30‰ at Tanganshan and +44‰ at Xiangtan, compared with typical values of 0‰ to +5‰ found in younger deposits. Furthermore there is no distinction between the shales and the Mn carbonate ores in the Neoproterozoic, unlike the younger deposits, which show much lighter δ34S in the shales than in the Mn ores (the spread is 25‰). Most other chemical parameters...
