Abstract

Joshua Spence studied a 1.75 to 1.71 billion year tectonic event within the Mount Isa Inlier. He found that this event can be distinguished from a younger mountain building event, the Isan Orogeny, which aids regional mineral exploration models and understanding of the evolution of the North Australian Craton.
