Stereograms obtained by processing striated planes recorded in the Eburnean basement complex and the basal part of the Volta Basin in southeast Ghana: (a), sets of strike-slip faults in migmatitic paragneisses of the Aboabo quarry; (b), sets of strike-slip faults in the Eburnean basement complex of the Nsawam quarry; (c), sets of strike-slip faults in quartzites at the Nkurakan quarry. The stars represent poles of the σ1 (star with 5 branches), σ2 (star with 4 branches), and σ3 (star with 3 branches) paleostress axes.
