    Age and occurrence of greenstone-granite belts. Greenstone-granite belts developed at many different times throughout the long Archean Eon.The Isua greenstone belt in West Greenland is about 3.85 billion years old. In the Zimbabwean craton, they formed over three successive periods: the Selukwe belt about 3.8 to 3.75 billion years ago, the Belingwean belts about 2.9 billion years ago, and the ...

  • Two distinct origins for Archean greenstone belts ...

     · A geochemical approach to this debate has been to compare the geochemistry of basaltic and intermediate rocks in greenstone belts with geochemical proxies of modern subduction processes (e.g. Condie, 2005, Pearce, 2008).However, whereas many such proxies identify a ''crustal'' signature in the bulk source of many Archean magmas, they cannot uniquely identify the stage in magmatic …

  • Greenstone belts: primordial tectonics – Historical Geology

    The greenstone belts are typically sandwiched between large bodies of crustal rocks such as granite and gneiss. Not all greenstone belts are Archean; some are also known from the Proterozoic. But the Proterozoic''s tectonic record is more diverse, so for the sake of this case study, we will focus on the Archean.

    Some Archean high-grade terrains contain what appear to be severely metamorphosed greenstone belt packages, but others include probable remnants of ancient shelf deposits. The association of shelf sequences with high-grade terrains reflects deep burial of continental margins, perhaps beneath tectonically emplaced "low-grade" slabs.
