In the late Precambrian history of the Wadi Kid area in the Sinai, Egypt, two deformation phases are clearly recognized. The first phase, D1 (pre-620 Ma), produced a steep regional foliation, axial planar to upright F1 folds, in rocks of a lower-greenschist grade. This compressional phase of deformation is interpreted in terms of subduction in an island-arc setting. The second phase, D1 (post-620 Ma), is mainly expressed by the widespread development of sub-horizontal mylonitic zones with a… CONTINUE READING
