Pan-African Paleostresses and Reactivation of the Eburnean Basement Complex in Southeast Ghana (West Africa)
Stereograms obtained by processing striated fracture planes recorded in the Mobile Zone in southeast Ghana: (a), sets of strike-slip faults in dolomitic carbonates of the Oterkpolu quarry; (b), reverse faults or thrust planes in nappe pile of Peduase; (c), sets of primary strike-slip faults in quartzites at the Somanya quarry; (d) and (e), sets of secondary strike-slip faults in quartzites and schists (Somanya quarry and Peduase-N road section); (f) and (g), normal faults in quartzites and schists (Peduase-S and Bani-Kpeve road sections); (h) sets of strike-slip faults in augen gneiss at the Ahunda quarry. The stars represent poles of the σ1 (star with 5 branches), σ2 (star with 4 branches), and σ3 (star with 3 branches) of paleostress axes.
