Late Palaeozoic arc flank and fore-arc basin sequence of the New England Fold Belt in the Stanage Bay region, central Queensland

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Devonian and Carboniferous (Yarrol terrane) rocks, Early Permian strata, and Permian-(?) Triassic plutons outcrop in the Stanage Bay region of the northern New England Fold Belt. The rocks of the Yarrol terrane accumulated in shallow (Mt Holly, Campwyn) and deeper (Neerkol) marine conditions proximal to an active magmatic arc which was probably of continental margin type. The Youlambie Conglomerate was deposited unconformably above the Yarrol terrane in a rift basin. Late Permian regional deformation, which involved east-west horizontal shortening achieved by folding, cleavage formation and east-over-west thrusting, increases in intensity towards the east. -from Authors
