  • Unequivocal evidence for the Proterozoic reconstruction of Australia‐Antarctica and Laurentia remains elusive, although various authors have interpreted sedimentary and igneous events in terms of initial (Neoproterozoic) rifting, and final (Neoproterozoic/Cambrian) drifting. The synchronous rifting and drifting reflect the tectonics of a late Neoproterozoic Pangea (East Gondwanaland and Laurentia) that amalgamated along the Mozambiquean belt ∼720 Ma and broke up at 560 Ma by growth of the Paleo… CONTINUE READING
