The tectonic and metallogenic framework of Myanmar : a Tethyan mineral system
(2016-12) - Journal article,
Myanmar is perhaps one of the world's most prospective but least explored minerals jurisdictions, containing important known deposits of tin, tungsten, copper, gold, zinc, lead, nickel, silver, jade and gemstones. A scarcity ...
Magmatic record of India-Asia collision
(2015-09-23) - Journal article,
New geochronological and geochemical data on magmatic activity from the India-Asia collision zone enables recognition of a distinct magmatic flare-up event that we ascribe to slab breakoff. This tie-point in the collisional ...
Geology, geochronology and isotopic geochemistry of the Xiaoliugou W-Mo ore field in the Qilian Orogen, NW China : case study of a skarn system formed during continental collision
(2017-03) - Journal article,
The Xiaoliugou W-Mo ore field lies within the mid-Paleozoic North Qilian Orogen, NW China, and hosts a W resource of 48.8 Mt @ 0.4% and 412.6 Mt of Mo @ 0.075%. It contains five deposits, including Xiaoliugou, Qiqing, ...
Delineating and characterizing the boundary of the Cathaysia Block and the Jiangnan orogenic belt in South China
(2016-04) - Journal article,
The Jiangshan-Shaoxing fault zone lies along the SE margin of the Jiangnan belt, and delineates the northeastern margin of the Cathaysia Block of the South China Craton. At Shijiao in NE Zhejiang, the fault zone consists ...
Reconstructing Early Permian tropical climates from chemical weathering indices
(2016-05) - Journal article,
Paleoflora studies suggest that continental drying occurred associated with the Early Permian deglaciation in southern North America, but not in North China. Both regions occupied tropical latitudes during the Early Permian, ...
Linking collisional and accretionary orogens during Rodinia assembly and breakup : implications for models of supercontinent cycles
(2016-09-01) - Journal article,
Periodic assembly and dispersal of continental fragments has been a characteristic of the solid Earth for much of its history. Geodynamic drivers of this cyclic activity are inferred to be either top-down processes related ...
