Stratigraphic and structural architecture of late-basin depositional systems in the Eastern Goldfields Province, Yilgarn Craton
Total Grant Value
With the aim of unravelling the stratigraphic and structural development of “late basin” depositional systems in the eastern Yilgarn Craton, this project undertook a new U-Pb age-dating technique for detrital zircons.
The method successfully yielded dates more cheaply and as much as ten times faster than SHRIMP dating, which in turn led the researchers to a dramatically revised interpretation of how the late basins developed.
