dc.description.abstractThe Caravarri Formation is the youngest supracrustal unit in the Palaeoproterozoic Kautokeino Greenstone Belt of western Finnmark. This greenstone belt and correlative units at Alta farther north were formerly ascribed to a continental rift setting near the northern margin of the Fennoscandian Shield. The Caravarri Formation is metamorphosed at very low grade and made up of c. 4000 m-thick, upward-coarsing, siliciclastic sandstones and conglomerates deposited in presently NNW-SSE-trending basin. It rests with depositional contact on the underlying argilitic Bik'kacak'ka Formation. The eastern boundary is an east-dipping thrust, with a hangingwall block of older, more highly deformed and metamorphosed metasupracrustals.
