Geochronology of emplacement and charnockite formation of the Margate Granite Suite, Natal Metamorphic Province, South Africa: implications for Natal-Maud belt correlations

Mendonidis, P; Thomas, R. J; Grantham, G. H; Armstrong, Richard

Description

The Margate Granite Suite underlies much of the Margate Terrane of the Natal Metamorphic Province, SE South Africa. It consists of foliated granites grouped into four main lithotypes: garnet leucogranite, garnet-free leucogranite, charnockite and garnet-biotite augen gneiss. In this study we present new U-Pb (SHRIMP) zircon geochronological data on each of the four lithotypes to constrain the timing of emplacement of the various granite phases and of charnockite formation. Magmatic zircon...[Show more]
