Abstract

High-grade gneisses and granolites are exposed in two contrasting settings in southern Africa: (1) as scattered areas in granite-greenstone terranes (e.g., Kaapvaal Province) intruded by more-homogeneous granitoids and associated with predominantly low-grade supracrustal sequences (Chapter 2), and (2) as extensive gneiss terranes in “mobile belts” with subordinate intrusive rocks.
