Abstract

The Gran Paradiso Massif is one of the Internal Crystalline Massifs (Penninic Zone) in the Alps. This Massif comprises the widely investigated Gran Paradiso Unit and the underlying, much less-explored Money Unit, which is a well-exposed tectonic window below the Gran Paradiso Unit. This contribution provides a new detailed petro-structural map of the Money Unit. An integrated structural and metamorphic study can relate different structures to the evolving metamorphic stages. There is also recognition of evidence of Permo-Carboniferous sedimentation, contact metamorphism and polyphase Alpine evolution, mainly developed under blueschist to greenschist facies conditions. The 1:5000 scale map (and the cross sections) display evidence for the Alpine evolution of the Money Unit and for the structural and geological setting of this area. From these data, a 3D model of the Money Unit and its folded contact with the Gran Paradiso Units is constructed.
