Chapter 12 Neoproterozoic glaciogenic diamictites of the Katanga Supergroup, Central Africa
Abstract Glaciogenic sediments of the Katanga Supergroup are represented by two units. The syn-rift Grand Conglomerat Formation (<765±5 Ma to >735±5 Ma) occurs within the Nguba Group, and the Petit
The provenance of northern Kalahari Basin sediments and growth history of the southern Congo Craton reconstructed by U–Pb ages of zircons from recent river sands
The southern Congo Craton is widely overlain by Meso- to Cenozoic sediments of the northern Kalahari Basin, which hamper any correlation of basement units. The latter are represented by the Archaean
Detrital zircon U–Pb geochronology and provenance of the Neoproterozoic Lower Roan Group, Chambishi Basin, North‐eastern Zambia: Implication for rift evolution of the Congo Craton
Zambia Copperbelt hosts numerous world‐class, high‐grade sediment‐hosted stratiform Cu deposits. The Lower Roan Group of the Katanga Supergroup is the main ore host and mainly comprises clastic
A late Mesozoic – early Cenozoic sedimentary recycling system on the Gondwana rifted margin of southeast Africa
Detrital zircons in late Cretaceous – Palaeogene, calcareous sandstone and conglomerate deposited in continental basins on the southeastern African margin after the breakup of Gondwana have


U-Pb zircon date from the Neoproterozoic Ghaub Formation, Namibia: Constraints on Marinoan glaciation
Dropstone-bearing glaciomarine sedimentary rocks of the Ghaub Formation within metamorphosed Neoproterozoic basinal strata (Swakop Group) in central Namibia contain interbedded mafic lava flows and
Stratigraphy of the Fungurume Group - evolving foreland basin succession in the Lufilian fold-thrust belt, Neoproterozoic-Lower Palaeozoic, Democratic Republic of Congo
The Lufilian arc (Neoproterozoic-Lower Palaeozoic) is a Pan-African orogen that lies between the Kalahari Craton in the south and the Congo Craton in the north. North vergent thrusting of its
Neoproterozoic allochthonous salt tectonics during the Lufilian orogeny in the Katangan Copperbelt, central Africa
The Neoproterozoic Katangan rocks in the Copperbelt of Shaba (Democratic Republic of the Congo) and Zambia contain the world's largest concentration of stratiform copper-cobalt ores. We propose that
Deformed batholiths in the Pan-African Zambezi belt, Zambia: Age and implications for regional Proterozoic tectonics
The Zambezi belt makes up part of the Late Proterozoic (Pan-African) network of orogenic belts in southern Africa. In Zambia, supracrustal rocks within the Zambezi belt are in contact with two
Chemostratigraphic correlation of carbonate successions in the Gariep and Saldania Belts, Namibia and South Africa
ABSTRACT Inter‐ and intrabasinal correlation of Neoproterozoic carbonate successions and associated glaciogenic deposits from the Pan‐African Gariep Belt and the Kango inlier in the Saldania Belt
