Composition and single zircon U-Pb emplacement and metamorphic ages of the Aggeneys Granite Suite, Bushmanland, South Africa

Bailie, Russell; Armstrong, Richard; Reid, David


The central Bushmanland portion of the Namaqua Province of South Africa is underlain by three voluminous suites of granitic gneisses, termed the Achab, Hoogoor and Aroams Gneisses, in the Aggeneys District, the site of major world-class Broken Hill-type Pb-Zn-Cu-Ag deposits. Geochemically the granitic gneisses have similar characteristics with only slight differences in the degree of fractionation present. The gneisses exhibit a predominance of Kibaran magmatic zircon ∼1.21 to ∼1-17 Ga ages,...[Show more]
