Abstract In the West Congolian and Katangan Pan African belts, late Proterozoic extensional tectonics related to the relaxation phase that followed the Kibaran collision ca. 1000 Ma ago evolved to reach a mature rift stage characterized by the E-MORB from Kimbungu (Bas-Zaire) in the Pan African West Congolian belt and Kibambale (Shaba, Zaire) in the Pan African Katangan belt. These mature rifts (proto-oceans) closed during the Pan African orogenic event, in an embryonic collision between the… CONTINUE READING
