Along the southern margin of the Capricorn Orogen the Narryer Terrane of the Archaean Yilgarn Craton was pervasively intruded by granite during ductile deformation and two stages of meta‐morphism at 1820–1800 Ma. Medium‐ to high‐grade metamorphism was closely followed by greenschist‐facies metamorphism, indicating a period of uplift which was coincident with dextral strike‐slip faulting.
