530 Ma syntectonic syenites and granites in NW Namibia - Their relation with collision along the junction of the Damara and Kaoko belts

Schmitt, Renata S.; Trouw, R.A.J.; Passchier, C.W.; Medeiros, Silvia R.; Armstrong, Richard


The Lower Ugab and Goantagab structural domains are located at the junction between the N-S trending Kaoko and the E-W trending Damara belts (NW Namibia), where Neoproterozoic metavolcano-sedimentary sequences were intruded by several syenitic/granitic plutons. We present here new U-Pb ages on zircon grains from the Voetspoor and Doros plutons. Together with petrological, geochemical and structural data we evaluate the timing of the deformation and relation to the geodynamics during the final...[Show more]
