1975). , at least three 1800-1700Ma andesitic arcs are identifiable with petrochemical polarity overlying sub-arc oceanic crust and there are remnants of synchronous arcs in six states farther east. These intraoceanic arcs are flanked by thick flysch-like greywacke and volcanoclastic sequences analogous to trench-slope deposits, and by finer clastics in backarc basin-like deposits, and are capped by molasse-basin assemblages. Syntectonic, synvolcanic granodiorite, minor tonalite and granite batholiths intrude the base of the arc assemblages and are restricted to an intra-arc setting.
