Early Palaeozoic (~500 Ma) versus Neoproterozoic (~1000 Ma) metamorphism within the Vestfold Hills Archaean Craton
Entry ID: ASAC_1066

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: ASAC project 1066 conducted Samarium-Neodymium isochron dating of recrystallised mafic dykes located in the SW perimeter of the Vestfold Hills. These dykes have experienced amphibolite-facies metamorphism, but the timing of this event is uncertain though many workers in the region postulate an age of ~1000 Ma or ~500Ma. Project 1066 provided preliminary data that suggests that this ... View entire text
