Rocks that aren’t so old

8 August 2013

At http://phys.org/print295079728.html and www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0009254113002696 … iron ore deposits in the Pilbara region of Australia are between 26 and 2 million years of age – much younger than most of the similar geological formations, and this is using uniformitarian methodologies based on decay rates. The iron ore was laid down in the Miocene – iron rich sediments accumulating at the bottom of ancient river channels (over tens of millions of years, they claim). It was also very wet in the Pilbara when the iron was laid down – for all those tens of millions of years it took to collect.
