Event geochronology of the Pan-African Kaoko Belt, Namibia

Goscombe, Ben; Gray, Derek; Armstrong, Richard; Foster, David; Vogl, James

Description

Zircon and monazite U-Pb dates, garnet Sm-Nd dates and hornblende 40Ar/39Ar data from the transpressional Kaoko Belt of the late Neoproterozoic Pan-African Orogenic system confirm three distinct tectono-metamorphic cycles: M1 (655-645 Ma), M2 (580-550 Ma) and M3 (535-505 Ma). The high-grade M1 metamorphic cycle and associated intrusive complexes are evident only within the westernmost Coastal Terrane. The isotopic data record a progressive and protracted history for the M2 metamorphic cycle...[Show more]
