    Project Details

    Description

    Continental crust is both created and destroyed at subduction zones. The project will investigate the geochemical enrichment of the mantle from "continent" subduction, its relationship to West Kimberley diamond deposits, shoshonite magmas and Au-Cu mineralization, and its implications for continent growth rates and mantle heterogeneity
