Mesoproterozoic U-Pb and Pb-Pb ages of granulites in NW Namibia: reconstructing a complete orogenic cycle

Seth, Barbara; Armstrong, Richard; Brandt, Sonke; Villa, Igor M; Kramers, Jan


The chronology of the crustal evolution of the granulite facies fault-bounded Epembe Unit south of the anorthositic Kunene Intrusive Complex (KIC) in NW Namibia is presented. U-Pb zircon ages by ion microprobe (SHRIMP II) from a heterogeneous set of granulite facies rocks from the Epembe Unit reveal Mesoproterozoic ages between 1520 and 1510 Ma for prograde zircon growth. Cathodoluminescence (CL) imaging clearly shows metamorphic growth of zircon grains and zircon rims around igneous cores....[Show more]
