Petrology geochemistry and tectonic setting of some flysch deposits

Bhatia, Mukul


The Paleozoic flysch sequences of eastern Australia show large variations in their mineralogical and geochemical compositions. On the basis of detrital mineralogy, the following five greywacke suites are recognised : Tamworth, Hill End, Hodgkinson, Bendigo and Cookman. The graywackes exhibit increasing maturity from the Tamworth to Cookman suites, characterised by an increase in quartz content and a decrease in lithic and feldspar grains. The greywacke suites are derived from dominantly...[Show more]
