Abstract

This Record provides information to accompany the usage of two web-based map sheets showing the time-space distribution of Proterozoic Large Igneous Provinces (LIPs) in Australia. The maps should be studied in context with other maps in this national series: the Map of Australian Proterozoic Mafic-Ultramafic Magmatic Events (which presents all magmatic events, large and small), and the Map of Australian Archean Mafic-Ultramafic Magmatic Events, together with their accompanying Geoscience Australia Records. Together, these are a comprehensive source of primary information on the place of mafic-ultramafic magmatism in the evolution of the Australian continent, and will be of interest to explorers in the search of magmatic ore deposits of nickel, platinum-group elements, chromium, titanium, and vanadium.
