A SIMS U-Pb (zircon) and Re-Os (molybdenite) isotope study of the early Paleozoic Macquarie Arc, southeastern Australia: Implications for the tectono-magmatic evolution of the paleo-Pacific Gondwana margin

Blevin, Philip; Kemp, A. I. S.; Norman, Marc; EIMF


New SIMS U-Pb (zircon) data for intrusive rocks of the Macquarie Arc and adjacent granitic batholiths of the Lachlan Orogen (southeastern Australia) provide insight into the magmatic and tectonic evolution of the paleo-Pacific Gondwana margin in the early Paleozoic. These data are augmented by Re-Os dates on molybdenite from four CuAu mineralised porphyry systems to place minimum age constraints on igneous crystallization. The simplicity of the zircon age distributions, and absence of older...[Show more]
