U-Pb dating of zircons by ion microprobe : case studies from the Northwestern Yilgarn Craton, Western Australia
This thesis has two principle objectives: to provide geochronological data for the Late Archean Murchison Province of Western Australia and to assess the strengths and limitations of the ion microprobe zircon dating technique. A project was conducted to provide zircon U/Pb age measurements on seven granitoid samples from the Murchison granite-greenstone terrain. These data represent the first systematic U/Pb age survey for the granitoids from this 100,000 km2 region. The oldest sample found in...[Show more]
