Meso- and Neoarchaean Banded Iron Formations of the Slave Craton, NW Canada: Seawater Chemistry, Source Characteristics, Depositional Setting and Age ConstraintsDownload
Banded iron formations (BIFs) are iron- and silica-rich chemical sedimentary rocks that have been widely used as a proxy for the chemical and redox composition of Achaean seawater. Within the Slave Craton (Northwest Territories, Canada), two different BIF deposits exist: (1) an ~ 2.85 Ga unit...
The origin and evolution of eclogite xenoliths and associated diamonds from the Jericho kimberlite, northern Slave craton, Canada: an integrated petrological, geochemical and isotopic studyDownload
Diamond-bearing eclogite xenoliths are relatively rare but provide insight into the composition and evolution of the cratonic lithospheric mantle and also insight into the diamond formation process. The major-, trace-element and Sr-Pb-O-isotope compositions of both high- and low-MgO diamond...
