Formatted Abstract/Summary
The Warburton–Cooper–Eromanga basins host one of the most prospective hot dry-rock geothermal resources (Big Lake Suite granite; BLS) that stems from unusual enrichment in radiogenic elements (up to 144 ppm Th and 30 ppm U). The overlying Eromanga Basin is also endowed with substantial hydrocarbon reserves. Despite these attributes, holistic basin analysis has not been attempted leaving much of central Australia’s crustal evolution poorly constrained. By conducting geochemical and geochronological analyses of primary, vein-hosted and authigenic phases, this study elaborates on its crustal evolution throughout the Palaeozoic and the influences on basin thermal and fluid flow events...
