Numerous stratiform manganese deposits occur in the Permian to Jurassic bedded chert successions of the Jurassic accretionary complexes of the Chichibu, Mino–Tamba, and North Kitakami belts in Japan. These accretionary complexes consist of deep-sea sediments accumulated in a pelagic, open-ocean setting within the Panthalassa Ocean. Although the depositional ages and processes of the Permian and Jurassic manganese deposits in these accretionary complexes have been studied, the Triassic bedded chert-hosted stratiform manganese deposits are poorly understood. We investigated the occurrence and stratigraphic distribution of Triassic stratiform manganese deposits in Japan, constraining their ages by means of integrated conodont–radiolarian biostratigraphy. On the basis of the conodont and radiolarian biostratigraphies, the depositional age of the Triassic manganese deposits was constrained to the latest Julian to earliest Tuvalian (mid-Carnian). This age indicates that the formation of the Triassic manganese deposits occurred contemporaneously with the last eruptive phase of the Wrangellia Large Igneous Province (LIP) volcanism and subsequent changes in the deep-sea redox conditions in the Panthalassa Ocean during the Carnian pluvial episode (CPE). Therefore, these manganese deposits may have been formed with the hydrothermal activity associated with the eruption of the Wrangellia LIP and/or the subsequent changes in marine redox conditions in the CPE.
