Geochronology


Molybdenite Geochronology Projects:

El Teniente chronology from Makesaev et al. 2004 showing that mineralization is associated with the intermediate volcanic rocks making El Teniente a traditional porphyry copper style deposit.




Molybdenite and other chronometers from Collahuasi, Chile, from Munizaga et al. 2006.




 


Low Concentration Geochronology Projects:

Molybdenite chronology from Iran porphyry copper deposit and associated source rocks that tie mineralization to crystallization ages for shallow plutons, Mirenjad et al 2013.

Pyrite isochron from epithermal system in Greece, age ties mineralization to 20Ma magmatic activity in the area, from Bristol et al. 2014.










Pyrite and magnetite isocrhon from shear Au deposit in Australia linking mineralization with metamorphic activity at 2.5 GA, integrated with other chronometers below, from Doyle et al 2015.
