Sedimentary provenance of the Neoarchean Ventersdorp Supergroup, southern Africa: Shedding light on the evolution of the Kaapvaal craton during the Neoarchean

Schneiderhan, E.; Zimmermann, Udo; Gutzmer, J.; Mezger, K.; Armstrong, Richard


The Ventersdorp Supergroup, an undeformed, subgreenschist-to-greenschist facies volcanosedimentary succession deposited on the Kaapvaal Craton between 2729 and 2665 Ma, represents an exceptional opportunity to study early cratonic evolution on Earth. Provenance studies of siliciclastic and volcaniclastic successions of the supergroup show that the Ventersdorp basin was sourced from two different regions, one that had a Mesoarchean history and another that maintained its juvenile character at...[Show more]
