Episodic granitoid emplacement in the Archaean Amalia-Kraaipan terrane, South Africa: confirmation from single zircon U-Pb geochronology

Poujol, M; Anhaeusser, C.R.; Armstrong, Richard


The Amalia-Kraaipan granite-greenstone terrane, located in the western part of the Kaapvaal Craton, South Africa consists of metamorphosed mafic volcanic rocks and interlayered ferruginous and siliceous metasediments (mainly banded iron formations), intruded by a variety of granitoid rocks comprising tonalitic and trondhjemitic gneisses, granodiorites and adamellites. This study presents new single zircon dating for several granitoid rocks in order to define the chronology of magmatic events...[Show more]
