Although it is established that iron ore in the Hamersley Province is located in structurally controlled sites, it has long been suspected that there is a stratigraphic control over those sites.

The base to this petrographic study is new type sections, one of the Dales Gorge Member of the Brockman Iron Formation, and the other of the Marra Mamba Iron Formation.
