The Heerenveen batholith in the Mesoarchean Barberton granite-greenstone terrain is a horizontal, tabular, and compositionally composite granite body belonging to the 3.1 Ga magmatic suite of granodiorites, monzogranites, and syenogranites, the granodiorite-monzogranite-syenogranite (GMS) suite, that has intruded large parts of the Kaapvaal Craton. In this paper, we present structural data of magmatic and penetrative solid-state fabrics of the Heerenveen batholith that was hitherto considered to be undeformed. The orientation and kinematics of conjugate sets of synmagmatic shear zones along the margins and within the Heerenveen batholith, the presence of regionally persistent magmatic and solid-state fabrics, and the progressive deformation of...
