Journal of the Geological Society (2008) 165 (3): 711-723.
... consistent with an ocean-floor environment, and trace element analyses are similar to those from cumulate gabbros of the Oman ophiolite. Combined field and petrological evidence suggests that there is an east–west-trending south-dipping Late Carboniferous suture in Altan and Nemegt Uul that may be regionally...

... metamorphic rocks documented in southern central Mongolia. Altan Uul contains an ophiolitic complex, greenschist-grade metasediments and volcanic rocks. The ophiolitic rocks are interpreted as a Carboniferous suture marking the closure of a marine seaway ( Rippington et al . 2008 ). The suture is also...
