Abstract

Most of the rocks of the Eastern Succession of the Mt Isa inlier described in this report were formed between 1760 and 1500 Ma, post-dating the Archaean and early Palaeoproterozoic history. The geodynamic settings of both the depositional and orogenic parts of this history have been extensively debated in the past and are still unresolved at present. Progress has been made in this report through an examination of the isotopic signatures of crustal blocks comprising the basement to the cover sequences, by analysing the geodynamic implications of mafic rocks and the voluminous late-orogenic felsic magmatism, and by a more detailed examination of the tectonothermal evolution.
