Abstract The distribution of shock veins, friction melts and cataclastic rocks in complex impact craters reflects the response of target lithologies to varying rates of strain. Within the Sudbury impact structure, thin (<2 mm), anastomosing veins, which can define shatter cone surfaces, permeate the target rocks in a c. 15 km wide zone around the Sudbury igneous complex (SIC). A similar relationship exists within the Vredefort impact structure, with the additional association of the high… Expand
