≥ 3850 Ma BIF and mafic inclusions in the early Archaean Itsaq Gneiss Complex around Akilia, southern West Greenland? The difficulties of precise dating of zircon-free protoliths in migmatites
The southern part of the early Archaean Itsaq Gneiss Complex (southern West Greenland) on Akilia and adjacent islands consists of polyphase dioritic-tonalitic-granitic injection components with inclusions of metavolcanic amphibolites, chemical sediments such as banded iron formation (BIF), gabbros and ultramafic rocks. Incipient in situ partial melting and strong deformation during several Archaean tectonothermal events strongly modified these injection components, so that they are now mostly...[Show more]
