Abstract

The metamorphic rocks of the Lanterman and Salamander Ranges in northern Victoria Land, termed the Lanterman Metamorphic Complex, are composed predominantly of semipelitic metasediments and subordinate pelitic, calcareous and conglomeratic metasediments, and mafic schists of presumed volcanic origin. Intrusive rocks include metamorphosed basic dikes, metatonalites, and Granite Harbour Intrusives. Talc schists occur as small pods in highly deformed zones in the eastern Lanterman Range and separate zones of distinct structural and metamorphic character. In the western terrane, amphibolite facies metamorphism accompanied the development of a steeply dipping schistosity (S1) and a vertical miner..
