Zircon U-Pb dating of Early Palaeozoic monzonitic intrusives from the Goonumbla area, New South Wales

Butera, K M; Williams, Ian; Blevin, P; Simpson, C J

Description

Zircon U-Pb ages measured on four small intrusions into the succession of Ordovician volcanic rocks that hosts Northparkes Cu-Au mine northwest of Parkes, New South Wales, place limits on the age of the volcanic sequence. The basal Nelungaloo Volcanics are constrained by a cross-cutting monzodiorite to be ≥484.3 ± 2.9 Ma (Early Ordovician). Similarly, the overlying basal Goonumbla Volcanics are constrained by another cross-cutting monzodiorite to be ≥450.8 ± 4.2 Ma (Middle Ordovician). A later...[Show more]
