  • Abstract A high-grade granite gneiss complex was emplaced into low-grade greenstones after an early episode of Late Archaean deformation (D1) in the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia. The components of the granitic gneiss complex range from migmatitic granitic gneiss to foliated and massive granite. The complex is surrounded by a marginal zone of high-grade (amphibolite facies) greenstones. The oldest phases of the complex are foliated and gneissic granite with igneous emplacement ages of… CONTINUE READING
