Aspects of the geology of the Snowy Mountains region and their implications for the tectonic evolution of the Lachlan Fold Belt

The Snowy Mountains region is an important area in any consideration of the evolution of the Lachlan Fold Belt as five major strata­ tectonic units occur within a relatively small area. Six major aspects of the geology of the region were chosen for study in order to elucidate the tectonic evolution of the region. 1) The Ordovician quartz-rich greywackes were found to be a chemically and mineralogically fractionated sediment which consisted of near pure end-member clay + quartz compositions...[Show more]
