Fig. 3

Simplified structural and geological map of the studied Roisan-Cignana-Shear-Zone (RCSZ). The map also shows the distribution of all samples used in the RSCM study and for P–T estimations. Foliation traces depicted in blue are traced only where blueschist relicts have been found. The axial trace of the major D5 fold at Becca di Roisan is depicted in red. AS Arolla Series, VS Valpelline Series, RCSZ Roisan-Cignana Shear Zone, UU Upper Unit, LU Lower unit, Co Combin Zone. The high-angle brittle faults are part of the Trois Ville System (Bistacchi and Massironi 2000). The inset shows lower hemisphere Schmidt (equal-area) projection of the stretching lineations developed during D4
