An active amagmatic hydrothermal system: The Paralana hot springs, Northern Flinders Ranges, South Australia

Brugger, Joel; Long, Ngaire; McPhail, Derry; Plimer, Ian


The Mesoproterozoic Mt. Painter Inlier (Northern Flinders Ranges, South Australia) is located in a zone of anomalously high heat flow attributed to high concentrations of radioactive elements in the Inlier.
