U-Pb SHRIMP data for the Madiba greenstone belt: implications for crustal growth on the western margin of the Kaapvaal Craton, South Africa

Poujol, Marc; Hirner, Andreas J.; Armstrong, Richard; Anhaeusser, C.R.

Description

The Madibe greenstone belt is the easternmost belt of the northern Kraaipan terrane, located in the Kimberley Block of the Kaapvaal Craton. It comprises a mature Middle to Late Archaean volcanic island arc succession that was welded onto the evolving western margin of the Kaapvaal Shield. The lithologies strike in a north-south direction and represent an assemblage of metamorphosed and strongly deformed volcanic and minor sedimentary rocks, now represented by phyllites, quartz-sericite schists,...[Show more]
