Thermal evidence for early Cretaceous metamorphism in the Shyok suture zone and age of the Khardung volcanic rocks, Ladakh, India

Dunlap, William James; Wysoczanski, R


The Dras island are (NW India) is intruded by the Ladakh Batholith and rimmed along its southern margin by the Indus suture zone, which developed ca. 50 Ma at the start of the India-Asia collision. Along its northern margin the Ladakh Batholith intrudes the Shyok Formation, a series of folded and faulted metasedimentary and metavolcanic rocks that are thought to mark an older suture of Cretaceous age. Restoration of Miocene and younger strike-slip movement of ~150 km on the Karakoram fault...[Show more]
