Precise timing of ore formation

Precise knowledge of the age relationships between ore formation and related magmatism, metamorphism and fluid migration is necessary for understanding the conditions of ore formation. This project (co-supervised by Y. Amelin and I. Campbell, ANU, and V. Kamenetsky, Uni.
