... Abstract Glaciogenic sediments of the Katanga Supergroup are represented by two units. The syn-rift Grand Conglomerat Formation (<765±5 Ma to >735±5 Ma) occurs within the Nguba Group, and the Petit Conglomerat Formation defines the base of the Kundelungu Group deposited in the earliest...

Mainly undeformed feldspathic sandstones and shales of the Plateau Group continental molasse (Figure 3 ) occur further to the northeast and mark the last...

The Katanga Supergroup consists of a ~7-km-thick sequence that can be subdivided into the Roan, Nguba, and Kundelungu Groups, based on the regional recognition of two diamictite horizons (Table 1...

The base of the overlying Kundelungu series is defined in Zambia by a diamictite termed the Tillite Formation (Grande Conglomerat in the Congo). The diamictite is one of the few marker units within...

... sheets, referred to as “lambeaux de poussée” (thrust slivers) by François (1973) . Because these are commonly tightly folded, we group them as “Folded Thrust Sheets.” The Folded Thrust Sheets lack the intense deformation of the underlying Roan and are not pervasively brecciated. Kundelungu units...

This chalcocite generation crosscuts barite, calcite, and quartz gangue minerals and therefore the chalcocite is grouped together with the barite, calcite, and quartz gangue into a Cu-Ag mineralization ( Haest et al., 2009 ). However, since no gangue minerals are seen to crosscut the orthorhombic...
