Abstract

The Northern Territory is an integral part of the great Australian Pre-Cambrian shield which underlies almost the whole of Western Australia and the Northern Territory, much of South Australia and portions of New South Wales and Queensland. In most parts of the Continent, Pre-Cambrian rocks were welded into a stable shield before the end of Pre-Cambrian time, and in the Northern Territory itself the structural framework was established, and most of the mineral deposits introduced by an orogeny which terminated geosynclinal sedimentation about the end of the Lower Proterozoic. This discussion of the structure of the Territory in relation to mineralization is mainly concerned with Pre-Cambrian, and in particular with Lower Proterozoic rocks. Only a broad outline of the subject is given here.
