Provenance and tectonic implications of the 3.283.23 Ga

The rocks of the 3.283.23 Ga Mapepe Formation mark the initiation of orogenesis in the Barberton Greenstone Belt, South Africa. However, reconstruction of the Mapepe basin(s) is challenging because the rocks occur in fault-bounded structural belts that are characterized by lateral heterogeneity and whose correlation remains uncertain.

This implies a tectonic setting comparable to some modern orogenic belts and that the granite-greenstone terrane investigated in this study possibly represents an exhumed mid- to lower-crustal terrane that formed a 'basement' to the Barberton greenstone belt at the time of the peak metamorphic event at ca. 3230 Ma.

The Moodies Group of the Barberton Greenstone Belt is one of the oldest and best-preserved quartz-rich sedimentary sequences on Earth. Its strata, approx. 3 km thick, record an initial extensional setting, followed by a strong shortening pulse which resulted in the dominant large-scale final deformation of the greenstone belt.

Gravity and Aeromagnetic Studies of the Filabusi

The Filabusi greenstone belt (FGB), Zimbabwe craton, has been geologically remapped relatively recently but its regional tectonic setting and subsurface structure have, until now, remained unresolved. This paper presents gravity and aeromagnetic studies that have been undertaken to provide this important information, and also extend mapping to areas of poor exposure.
