Mount Throssell


(Map- geographic location of Mount Throssell, rather than the prospect).

Approximately 250 kilometres east north-east of Wiluna.

Exploration has discovered five small pipe, or sill-like intrusions of ultramafic lamprophyre. A microdiamond was discovered at the BJ 1 sill, and a full set of (un-named) mineral indicators at BJ 5. Nothing more was found. It has been included as a reference pending any further discoveries.

2 small pipe-like bodies - a sill and an intrusion of uncertain shape - of ultramafic lamprophyric rocks situated close to northern margin of the Archean Yilgarn Craton (Hamilton & Rock 1990).

Geochronology

Mineralization age: Carboniferous : 305 ± 7 Ma

Important note: This table is based only on rock and mineral ages recorded on mindat.org for this locality and is not necessarily a complete representation of the geochronology, but does give an indication of possible mineralization events relevant to this locality. As more age information is added this table may expand in the future. A break in the table simply indicates a lack of data entered here, not necessarily a break in the geologic sequence. Grey background entries are from different, related, localities.
