Title: Burial diagenesis and Mississippi Valley-type mineralization in the upper Devonian reef complexes of the Lennard Shelf, Canning Basin, Western Australia
Author: McManus, Andrew
Issue Date: 1991
School/Discipline: National Centre for Petroleum Geology and Geophysics
Abstract: The aim of this study is to approach the problem of the timing of mineralization in MVT deposits in the context of the diagenetic evolution of the Devonian reef complexes of the Lennard Shelf. These carbonates were subject to two important burial diagenetic events, Late Devonian-Early Carboniferous and Permian-Cenozoic. The region of main interest in this thesis is Billiton's Fossil Downs exploration licence in the Fossil Downs and Brooking Springs Station areas.
