Evidence of 1.7- to 1.8-Ga Collisional Arc in the Kaoko Belt, NW Namibia
Detailed structural and isotopic analyses in the Hoanib and Ugab River Valleys indicate the existence of an exotic 1.7- to 1.8-Ga terrane in the Pan-African Kaoko Belt. This crustal block, called as Mudorib Complex, is imbricated between autochthonous and para-autochthonous rocks of Congo Craton, Kaoko Basin, and Western Kaoko Batholith units during the main tectono-thermal phase of Kaoko Belt collision around 580 Ma, involving the Rio de La Plata, Congo and Kahalari paleoplates.
