Summary
Abstract: Early mapping of the Northern Victoria Land region suggested the presence of three major north-northwest trending belts with differing rocks, structures and geological histories. These differences were suggested to be over-rated and that the relationships between the belts were close. Furthermore, subsequent geochemical work showed that the Cambrian volcanics of the central Bowers belt were ... View entire text
