... across the greenschist- to amphibolite-facies transition. However, hypozonal orogenic gold deposits represent an enigma in this context. Some of these apparently formed in higher-grade metamorphic rocks when temperatures were beyond the wet solidus of quartz-feldspar–bearing rocks; it is therefore...

... between 1900 Ma and 1850 Ma. The Karrat Group and magmatic arc rocks underwent metamorphism ca. 1830–1800 Ma during the collisional phase of the Rinkian orogeny. The metamorphic grade of the Karrat Group increases from greenschist facies in the south to granulite facies in the north, where it is marked...

... of 400–650 °C, which suggests amphibolite to greenschist facies conditions. In addition, it is extremely likely that the mylonites experienced late-stage, lower temperature deformation as demonstrated by the sporadic bulging recrystallization, the quartz basal <a> slip system, and the two-feldspar...

In the norther part of the Rif, the Sebtide complex cropping out at the core of the Beni Mezala antiform suffered maximum paleo-temperatures derived from Raman parameters typical of greenschists facies, whereas in the flanks of the antiform the gap in temperatures between Lower Paleozoic...

Results suggest that the iron oxide-apatite deposits were emplaced in an intracontinental back-arc basin, and they formed precrustal shortening under shallow crustal conditions. Subsequent east-west crustal shortening under greenschist facies metamorphism...

It is uncertain whether these differences reflect a transitional decrease of metamorphic grade...

The metabasic rocks occur as blueschists and greenschists, whereas the metasedimentary rocks are former greywackes s.l ., or psammopelites, and can now be characterized as phyllites. Eight characteristic mineral assemblages can be defined within the metabasic sample suite...
