Abstract

Paleomagnetic investigation on some Lesser Himalayan low-grade metasediments in the Malekhu area detected no primary magnetization while two distinct secondary magnetization components of its own type have been revealed. These components area interpreted as a recent field component (post-tectonic) and a pre-tectonic component probably of Eocene time.

 

A clockwise rotation of the Malekhu area by about 45° with respect to the Indian Shield since the early Tertiary time is inferred too.
