U-Th-Pb detrital zircon geochronology from the southern Prince Charles Mountains, East Antarctica - Defining the Archaean to Neoproterozoic Ruker Province

Phillips, G; Wilson, Christopher J.L.; Campbell, Ian; Allen, Charlotte M

Description

Laser ablation inductively coupled mass spectrometry (LA-ICPMS) dating of detrital zircon has been employed to tighten geochronological constraints from the southern Prince Charles Mountains, East Antarctica. The grains of detrital zircon are from extensive metasedimentary units that define different stratigraphic levels. Provenance information from this study has identified three lithostratigraphic units that range in age from Archaean to Neoproterozoic times. The newly defined Tingey Complex...[Show more]
