DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
The study utilizes the fission-track dating method on zircons sampled from VC-2B to evaluate the thermal history of the Sulphur Springs area.
 
Notes
Age dating calculations are obscurred by annealing of the zircons at high temperature, and by potential transport of zircons from Precambrian rocks into younger strata.
