Tectonic cycles in the Strangways Metamorphic Complex, Arunta Inlier, central Australia: geochronological evidence for exhumation and basin formation between two high-grade metamorphic events

Maidment, David; Hand, Martin; Williams, Ian


Deformation, metamorphism and magmatism during the Strangways Orogeny in the eastern Arunta Inlier of central Australia appears to be a result of plate-margin-related tectonism along the southern margin of the North Australian Craton. SHRIMP zircon dating of basement nd cover sequences in the Strangways Metamorphic Complex indicates that the Strangways Orogeny consisted of two distinct tectonothermal cycles between ca 1.79 and ca 1.71 Ga. Sedimentary protoliths of the Mt Bleechmore Granulite...[Show more]
