Unique locality of Cl-bearing minerals. Three 0.3 - 3 m thick shear zones occur in a gabbro-anorthosite.
Cl-rich amphibole, with garnet, plagioclase and Ba-, Ti-, Cl-rich biotite in shear zone in 1.8 Gy old noritic granulites.
The Cl-rich amphibole belongs to an amphibolite facies assemblage that replaced the granulite facies during shear deformation associated with the infiltration of a Cl-/Ba-rich fluid.
