...-Oligocene intracontinental potassic intrusions and associated mineralization in western Yunnan are located proximal to the Mesozoic Jinsha suture, suggesting that this Mesozoic lithospheric boundary may have provided a first-order control on localization of Cenozoic mineral systems. These potassic felsic...

...YI-CHUN ZHANG; SHU-ZHONG SHEN; QING-GUO ZHAI; YU-JIE ZHANG; DONG-XUN YUAN Abstract The Qiangtang Metamorphic Belt (QMB) was considered to have either formed in situ by amalgmation of the North and South Qiangtang blocks or been underthrust from the Jinsha suture and exhumed in the interior...

... of the lower to middle crust is composed of silica-rich metasedimentary-dominated mélange rock that formed during Middle Triassic southward subduction along the Jinsha suture on the northern edge of the Qiangtang terrane. The implied crustal structure, which is also defined by geophysical experiments, provides...

... Tibet and the Pamir, which indicates tectonic and/or erosional removal, likely sometime in the Mesozoic. Furthermore, our documentation of the Jinsha suture in the southeast Pamir on the eastern side of the Karakoram fault shows deflections of terranes across the Himalayan-Tibetan orogen were...

The agreement of fast directions with the strikes of major active strike‐slip faults and strike‐slip focal mechanisms, but not with fossil structures such as the Jinsha suture, implies that the anisotropy records lithospheric...

... Jinsha suture in the north. The mélange, exposed structurally beneath Upper Paleozoic to Mesozoic strata in the footwalls of early Mesozoic normal faults, is composed mostly of Paleozoic metasedimentary and crystalline rocks. These findings support the hypothesis that a large part of the central...

... the underplating and the exhumation occurred during early Mesozoic southward subduction of oceanic lithosphere along the Jinsha suture. This model predicts that the deeper crust of much of northern Tibet consists of accretionary melange, in contrast to the continental crystalline crust of southern Tibet, and may...

... of the northwestern segment to the south of the western Jinsha–Garzê–Litang suture. Southward subduction along the western Jinsha–Garzê–Litang suture is likely to have generated the Yushu–Yidun arc. The second arc (Jomda–Weixi–Yunxian) was diachronous and is continuous through the southeastern Tibetan Plateau...

If the shortening in the Himalaya was completely accommodated by flat subduction, then it would imply that the northern edge of the Indian continent has already reached the Jinsha suture separating the Qiangtang terrane from the Songpan Ganzi terrane ( Yin...

This idea has received support from the petrologic observation that suggests that the lower crust of the Qiangtang terrane consists of anhydrous metasedimentary rocks ( Hacker et al...

... of shortening. The Qiangtang terrane deeper crust is inferred to include large volumes of mélange and flysch that were underthrust from the Jinsha suture to the north (Fig. 1) during early Mesozoic time ( Kapp et al., 2000 ; Kapp et al., 2003b ). These relatively weak materials in the deeper central Tibetan...
