... that the Karakoram Batholith evolved during Albian time (~110–100 Ma) owing to the subduction of Tethys oceanic lithosphere along the Shyok Suture Zone. This region witnessed a period of no magmatism during ~99–85 Ma. Following this, the Kohistan–Ladakh arc and Karakoram Batholith evolved as a single entity in Late...

... margin of Eurasia. We have not found evidence of this suture zone in the confluence area. Neither the Shyok Fm. nor the Nubra Fm., previously described as dismembered ophiolitic sequences, bear any evidence of including ophiolites. The former, with its graded-bedded sandstones interlayered with basalts...

... Ma) the Dras arc complex was thrust over the North Indian margin. The Dras arc complex, together with the Kohistan arc to the west (in Pakistan) is inferred to have sutured to the Eurasian margin (Karakoram) in latest Cretaceous time along the Shyok Suture Zone ( Thakur 1981, 1990 ; Thakur &...
