Overcoming Proterozoic quartzite sand-body miscorrelations: integrated sequence stratigraphy and SHRIMP U-Pb dating of the Surprise Creek Formation, Torpedo Creek and Warrina Park Quartzites, Mt Isa Inlier

Jackson, M.; Southgate, P; Black, Lance; Blake, P; Domagala, J

Description

In the western part of the Mt Isa Inlier one of the most obvious lithostratigraphic correlations is the Torpedo Creek Quartzite (Lawn Hill Platform) and the Warrina Park Quartzite (Leichhardt River Fault Trough). These two sand bodies form the basal lithostratigraphic unit of their respective groups - McNamara and Mt Isa - and crop out as easily mappable, prominent ridges of white quartzite. Correlation of these sand bodies forms the linchpins for lithostratigraphic subdivision in the region....[Show more]
