An Assessment of the Magmatic Conditions of Late Neoproterozoic Collisional and Post-collisional Granites From the Guéra Massif, South-Central Chad
The Guéra Massif, in South-Central Chad hosts granitic rocks that were emplaced during distinct intervals (595–590; ∼570; ∼560 Ma) of the Late Ediacaran Central African Orogenic Belt. To the
Provenance of Austroalpine basement metasediments: tightening up Early Palaeozoic connections between peri-Gondwanan domains of central Europe and Northern Africa
New U–Pb and Lu–Hf detrital zircon data together with whole-rock geochemical and Sm–Nd data were obtained for paragneisses of the Austroalpine basement south of the Tauern Window. Geochemically


Pan-African reworked early/middle Proterozoic crust in NE Africa west of the Nile: Sr and Nd isotope evidence
Whole-rock Rb-Sr studies on six suites of highly metamorphosed basement rocks from southern Egypt and northern Sudan, west of the River Nile, yield Pan-African ages (562–918 Ma): these ages are
Late Precambrian Crustal Evolution in NE Sudan: Isotopic and Geochronologic Constraints
The continental crust of NE Africa and Arabia was formed or modified during the late Precambrian (ca. 900-550 Ma) Pan-African orogenic cycle. The relationship between juvenile crust of the
Magma source and evolution of Late Neoproterozoic granitoids in the Gabal El-Urf area, Eastern Desert, Egypt: geochemical and Sr–Nd isotopic constraints
Granitoids in the Gabal El-Urf area in Eastern Egypt consist of a monzogranite pluton, belonging to the Younger Granite province, emplaced in granodioritic rocks. Whole rock Rb–Sr dating indicate
Geochronologic and isotopic evidence for involvement of pre-Pan-African crust in the Nubian shield, Egypt
Two Late Proterozoic granitic bodies from the Eastern Desert of Egypt, the ca. 578 Ma Nakhil and the ca. 595 Ma Aswan granites, provide insights into processes of crust formation in the
Characteristics and Origin of Egyptian Younger Granites
The post-tectonic Younger Granite plutons of Egypt are products of a single magmatic episode 603 to 575 m.y. ago which marked the end of a “cratonizing process” and the beginning of truly anorogenic
Trace elements in continental-margin magmatism: Part II. Trace elements in Ben Ghnema batholith and nature of the Precambrian crust in central North Africa: Summary
The Ben Ghnema bacholith is in the northwestern part of the Tibesti massif of southern Libya. It was formed as a series of separate plutons about 550 m.y. ago (Pan-African time). The batholith is
