The Bushmanland Group supracrustal succession, Aggeneys, Bushmanland, South Africa: Provenance, age of deposition and metamorphism

Bailie, Russell; Armstrong, Richard; Reid, David


The central portion of the structurally complex and poly-metamorphosed Namaqua Province of western South Africa is underlain by a series of pelitic and psammitic metasediments, termed the Bushmanland Group, which is host to world class Broken Hill-type Pb-Zn-Cu-Ag deposits at Aggeneys. Geochemical, U-Pb SHRIMP zircon geochronology and Sm-Nd isotopic determinations of the metasediments at Aggeneys were undertaken to determine the age and nature of the provenance, as well as to confine the age of...[Show more]
