Neoarchæan crustal evolution in the Congo Craton: evidence from K rich granitoids of the Ntem Complex, southern Cameroon

Abstract

The Neoarchæan (2.6 Gal K rich granitoids of the Ebolowa area (Ntem Complex, Congo Craton) in southern Cameroon form small massifs trending north-northwest-south-southeast to north-south and contain xenoliths of the surrounding tonalite-trondhjemite-granodiorite (TTG) series and of the greenstone belt country rocks. The granitoids range in modal composition from granodiorite to granite and leucogranite. The rocks display high SiO2 (69–76.5%), Na2O+K2O (5.5–9.1 %) and K2O/Na2O (0.5–1.9). They are metaluminous to slightly peraluminous (0.9
