Abstract

Channel iron deposits (CID) consist of ferruginous chemical sediments, and are an unusual subset of Phanerozoic coidal ironstone deposits almost unique to the Pilbara, where they constitute around 19 per cent of the Pilbara's iron ore exports. These deposits occupy many of the ancestral river channels of the Pilbara region, especially the Robe River palaeochannels, incising and meandering through the Precambrian banded iron formations (BIF) of the Hamersley Group and the underlying Fortescue Volcanics.
