U-Pb SHRIMP dating of Detrital Zircons from the Nzilo Group (Kibaran Belt): Implications for the Source of Sediments and Mesoproterozoic Evolution of Central Africa

Kokonyangi, Joseph W.; Kampunzu, Ali B; Armstrong, Richard; Arima, Makato; Yoshida, Masaru; Okudaira, Takamoto


The Kibaran Supergroup, a >3000-km-long belt of metasedimentary and igneous rocks in the southeastern Congo, is in a critical location between the Congo Craton (sensu stricto) and the Tanzania-Bangweulu Block. Understanding its tectonic evolution will shed much-needed light on the amalgamation history of sub-Saharan Africa. This study presents U-Pb SHRIMP age data for 150 detrital zircons from four metasedimentary formations of the Nzilo Group, the middle lithostratigraphic unit within the...[Show more]
