The Damaran orogenic belt (Neoproterozoic) in Namibia hosts two dramatically different styles of VMS mineralization. Deposits located in central Namibia are related to the Matchless Amphibolite member. Highly deformed stratabound pyrite-pyrrhotite-chalcopyrite lenses are interbedded with amphibolites and magnetite-bearing quartzites in a dominantly shaly sequence. A second group of deposits is located in the southern part of the country. They consist of stratiform sphalerite-galena lenses hosted by shales and they occur above felsic domes and related volcaniclastic rocks (e.g. Rosh Pinah Mine).
