Noble gases in pyroxenites and metasomatised peridotites from the Newer Volcanics, southeastern Australia: implications for mantle metasomatism

Matsumoto, T; Honda, Masahiko; McDougall, Ian; O'Reilly, Suzanne Yvette; Norman, Marc; Yaxley, Gregory


The elemental and isotopic compositions of five noble gases (He, Ne, Ar, Kr and Xe) have been determined in selected, well-documented, ultramafic xenoliths from southeastern Australia. These xenoliths include both spinel-bearing peridotites with an apparent metasomatic overprint and garnet-bearing pyroxenites. In general, helium, neon, argon and xenon isotopic ratios from gases trapped in fluid inclusions of the samples are mid-ocean ridge basalt (MORB)-like, as has previously been found in...[Show more]
