The Paleozoic-Mesozoic recycling of the Rakaia Terrane, South Island, New Zealand: sandstone clast and sandstone petrology, geochemistry, and geochronology
The Torlesse terranes - part of the New Zealand Eastern Province - are accretionary complexes that comprise an enormous volume of quartzofeldspathic sandstones and mudstones with subsidiary conglomerates plus minor oceanic assemblages. Two terranes are recognised in the South Island - the Permian to Late Triassic Rakaia Terrane and the Late Jurassic to Early Cretaceous Pahau Terrane.
