We welcome the comment made by Ikenne et al. (2021) that gives us the opportunity to clarify some potentially mistakable points of our paper. Recent studies on the central and eastern Anti-Atlas demonstrate the presence of an Eburnean basement beneath Cryogenian and Ediacaran formations. This is particularly corroborated by detrital and inherited Paleoproterozoic zircon in all Ediacaran sedimentary and plutonic rocks, including the associated Nd model ages between 0.80 and 1.82 Ga (Gasquet et al. 2005; Errami et al. 2009; Toummite et al. 2013; Belkacim et al. 2017).
