The Paria Península in eastern Venezuela exposes an E-W–oriented mountain belt composed of deformed and metamorphosed sediments that were deposited on the northern South American passive margin in early Mesozoic time. The metamorphic grade, mostly greenschist facies, decreases from north to south in a direction perpendicular to the trend of the metamorphic belt. Foliation (S1) dips steeply to the south along the southern coast and progressively gentler to the north to 25–30°. S1 strikes ∼ 060–075° subparallel to oblique to the general trend of the metamorphic belts. Stretching lineation (L1) plunges variably to the SW....
