Mafic Dykes from Heimefrontfjella and implications for the post-Grenvillian to pre-Pan-African geological evolution of western Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica

Bauer, Wolfgang; Fielitz, W.; Jacobs, Jeffrey Bruce; Fanning, Christopher; Spaeth, G


Two groups of geochemical different dykes have been identified in the Grenville-aged basement of Heimefrontfjella. The first group comprises dykes of continental tholeiite composition which probably intruded during the final stage of indentation of the Kaapvaal-Grunehogna Craton into Laurentia. One dyke of this group yielded an U-Pb zircon SHRIMP age of 1033 ± 7 Ma. The second group has an E-type MORB composition and may be related to ocean floor basalts of the Mozambique Ocean between East and...[Show more]
