Abstract

This Record contains zircon U-Pb geochronological data obtained between September 2000 and August 2001 on rocks from the Yilgarn Craton, Western Australia. The data were collected as part of the Norseman-Wiluna Synthesis project, a National Geoscience Accord project that operates in collaboration with the Geological Survey of Western Australia. They are helping to meet the objective of providing an improved geological and metallogenic framework for the Norseman-Wiluna region of the eastern Yilgarn Craton, and help provide geochronological constraints on geodynamic and tectonic models for the region. The data were acquired through a collaborative research agreement between Curtin University of Technology, Bentley, Western Australia and Geoscience Australia. This Record describes the samples analysed and the analytical results obtained, and provides a brief discussion of their geochronological interpretation. The broader geological implications of the data will be published elsewhere. The complete data files, including data for QGNG standards and thodoluminescence (CL) images showing SHRIMP spot locations, are stored in the Geoscience Australia database, OZCHRON.
