CONTINENTAL margin plate tectonism during the late Precambrian in southern and central South West Africa and western Botswana is strongly suggested by the geographical distribution, stratigraphy, composition and evolutionary characteristics of the pre-Damara, pre-Nama formations (1,350–900 Myr old) occurring north of the Namaqua Tectonic Province1. If the distribution of these units is considered it is apparent that a unique pattern exists (Fig. 1). The data for the generalised geological map… CONTINUE READING
