The distribution of intrusive plutonic igneous rocks at Reeves Bluff and the Western Worcester Ranges by geological mapping and geochemical and geochronological analysis of samples
Entry ID: K062_2001_2002_NZ_1

Abstract: The relationship between the processes of metamorphism, magmatism and deformation that took place during the Ross Orogeny has been investigated. Previous work has established that the relationship between intrusive igneous rocks and the metamorphosed sediments into which they are emplaced has enabled the relative age of events to be determined. The earliest plutons were intruded into already ... View entire text
