Abstract: A large part of the deformation in the Archean Pilbara granitoid-greenstone terrain is localized in relatively narrow sheer zones. The Mulgandinnah shear zone (MSZ) is a major one of these, with a width up to 8 km, that can be followed for over 70 km along strike in the Shaw Batholith in the eastern Pilbara. It forms part of the Mulgandinnah Lineament, that can be traced to the Lalla Rookh Basin and the Carlindi Batholith in the north, giving it a total length of over 150 km. The MSZ contains both mylonites and ultramylonites, both of which have foliations that are subvertical to steeply dipping, with the ultramylonitic foliation overprinting the mylonitic foliation to form more localized zones of high strain. Stretching lineations are mostly subhorizontal to shallow south plunging for both the mylonites and ultramylonites, but can vary between 50 degrees N and 50 degrees S. Both foliations formed under upper-greenschist to amphibolite grade conditions. The MSZ displays a consistent sinistral sense of shear, as indicated by sigma and delta-type porphyroclasts, S-C fabrics and rotated pegmatite veins, The mylonites and ultramylonites are interpreted to have developed as part of a progressive deformation event leading to strain localization in the ultramylonites.
