Early to mid Carboniferous I-type granites distributed in a broad meridional belt west of Sydney, southeastern Australia, represent the last phase of granite magmatism in the southern Lachlan Fold Belt. Rare inherited zircon in the granites, in combination with zircon precipitated from the melt phase of the magmas, provides direct evidence of the nature and age of the source rocks from which the granites were derived, and the isotopic compositions of those rocks. Most granites from the north...[Show more]
