Advantages of using radiocarbon dating
Professor Reddy used a technique called electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) to effectively discriminate between reidite and its compositionally identical host zircon. Dr Lesley Wyborn (NCI) was "pleased to see the Jd LC and the community making progress in achieving what [she] has been trying to achieve for the last 30 years in Australian Geochemistry Laboratories ". Analytical pyrolysis for determining the molecular composition of contemporary monosulfidic black ooze. The discovery paves the way for developing reidite as a proxy for meteorite impact events that can be extended back in geological time to provide insights into Earth’s early impact record. Tulipani, S., Grice, K., Greenwood, P., Schwark, L., Haines, P. Jd LC is looking forward to expanding its data delivery services to include geochemistry data from its Sensitive High Resolution Ion Micro Probe (SHIMP) and laser ablation instruments in the future. As the downturn in mineral prices continues to drag on Australia’s economy, a project led by Perth’s Curtin University is seeking to create an open access digital mineral inventory of WA that it hopes could stimulate interest in further exploration in the state.

See poster for more about Digital Mineralogy Library. This equates to almost 65% of Australia’s national output, with minerals being Australia’s major export earner. * The Digital Mineralogy Library project is supported by the Australian National Data Service (ANDS) and Au Scope through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy Program. The collapse of iron ore prices to below /tonne, down from a peak of 0/tonne four years ago, has hit WA hard and the state is now urgently seeking ways to stimulate its mineral sector and diversify its resource base away from iron ore. • Paul Gottlieb (Tescan Orsay Holding), who summarised the recent technological and software developments at Tescan and discussed future challenges for the TIMA and automated mineralogy. Thanks to all at Curtin and AXT staff who were involved in the workshop.
He said reidite is important because it is only known to form in nature during meteorite impact events.
“The discovery of this Precambrian occurrence indicates the potential for using the presence of reidite to indicate and record very ancient impact events,” Professor Reddy said.
“It is a breakthrough discovery that will help determine terrestrial impact events which have had a profound influence on Earth’s geological, geochemical and biological evolution.” Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research and Development Professor Graeme Wright said Curtin is at the forefront of high-impact research and development in minerals and energy sectors.
DOWNLOAD THE NEWSLETTER Curtin University researchers have for the first time been able to visualise where helium atoms are trapped within individual mineral grains, providing information that can help to determine the geological history of the Earth’s crust and assist in monitoring natural hazards like earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
