Metamorphism of the granite-greenstone terrane south of the Barberton greenstone belt, South Africa: an insight into the tectono-thermal evolution of the lower portions of the Onverwacht Group

Dziggel, Annika; Stevens, Gary; Poujol, M; Anhaeusser, C.R.; Armstrong, Richard


This paper reports new geochronological and metamorphic data from Onverwacht Group greenstone remnants exposed in the granitoid-dominated terrain to the south of the Barberton greenstone belt. The greenstone remnants consist of metamorphosed mafic and ultramafic metavolcanic sequences, with minor sedimentary units that comprise thin chert and banded iron formation layers, interbanded with the (ultra) mafic volcanic units, as well as an up to 8 m-thick clastic sedimentary unit that contains...[Show more]
