Geologic evolution of the Barberton greenstone belt, South Africa / Геологическая эволюция зеленокаменного пояса Барбертон, Южная Африка

The Swaziland Supergroup in the Barberton Greenstone Belt (BGB) consists of a lower, predominantly volcanic sequence, the Onverwacht Group; a middle volcaniclastic and quartz-poor clastic succession, the Fig Tree Group; and an upper quartzose terrigenous unit, the Moodies Group. In classic sections in the Onverwacht anticline, the Onverwacht Group includes 8 to 10 km of komatiitic, basaltic, and dacitic volcanic rocks and thin, silicified sedimentary layers that have been subdivided, from base to top, into the Komati, Hooggenoeg, and Kromberg Formations, and a new unit, the Mendon Formation. The ages and stratigraphic relationships of the highly altered Sandspruit and Theespruit Formations in the anticline are not fully resolved, but the latter includes felsic volcanic components that are in part older than the Komati Formation and in part correlative with dacitic volcanic units at the top of the Hooggenoeg Formation. However, in the Steynsdorp anticline, rocks assigned to the Theespruit Formation lie stratigraphically below the Komati Formation and include the oldest dated stratigraphic units in the Swaziland Supergroup. <...>
