Title: The geochemistry of the Tapley Hill Formation and Sturt Tillite, near Darlington, South Australia
Author: Love, R. J.

School/Discipline: School of Physical Sciences
Abstract: Late Precambrian sediments, in the vicinity of Sturt Gorge, have been mapped and investigated geochemically. The sequence consists of 112 metres of tillite and interbedded arenites (Sturt Tillite) overlain by about 2000 metres of finely laminated shales (Tapley Hill Formation). A combination of geochemical and stratigraphic observations suggested that silts derived from the till matrix were transported into a shallow marine basin by the process of glacial outwash.
