Magnetic fabric constraints on oroclinal bending of the Texas and Coffs Harbour blocks: New England Orogen, eastern Australia
We have carried out a magnetic fabric study on deformed, clay-rich rocks from the Carboniferous Texas beds and Coffs Harbour Association in order to test the hypothesis of oroclinal bending of the Texas and Coffs Harbour blocks of the southern New England Orogen, eastern Australia. The magnetic susceptibility is dominated by paramagnetic phyllosilicates, with site-dependent contributions from the ferromagnetic minerals pyrrhotite, magnetite and hematite. Pyrrhotite is ubiquitous in the Texas...[Show more]
