Paleomagnetic methods have been used in economic geology to date mineralization in sediment-hosted ore deposits and thereby help to develop ore deposit models and understand the geodynamic settings in which mineralization can occur. However, paleomagnetic ages are sometimes inconsistent with other geochronological techniques and with geological observations. Here we test the veracity of paleomagnetic ages for sediment-hosted ores through a study of the Irish Midlands ore field. We find that unal...

Hydrocarbon evolution is extremely challenging to determine, both temporally and spatially, in complex tectonic settings. Here we investigate the western margin of the Xuefeng uplift (southern China), which records multiple and protracted tectonic and hydrocarbon-generation events. This timing of initial oil generation is recorded by low-maturity bitumen (type A), which yields an Re-Os bitumen date of ca. 430 Ma, consistent with basin models and a ca. 405 Ma bitumen Rb-Sr date. In contrast, apat...

The organic-rich lower Silurian shale of the Longmaxi Formation in the Sichuan Basin is the most important target for shale-gas exploration in China. Most Paleozoic rocks of the Sichuan Basin have experienced extraordinarily pervasive remagnetizations. To test a hypothesized connection between hydrocarbon generation and remagnetization and contribute to shale-gas exploration in the region, we undertook an integrated magnetic, geochemical, and petrographic study of 160 specimens from the shale. T...

In this paper, we report the pyrolysis and formation of magnetic minerals in three source rock samples from the Wessex Basin in Dorset, southern England. The experimental conditions in the laboratory recreated the catagenesis environment of oil source rocks. Magnetic analysis of both the heated and the unheated samples at room temperature and at very low-temperatures (5 K), coupled with transmission electron-microscopy imaging and X-ray analysis, revealed the formation of nanometre-sized (<10 nm...

Abstract A new paleomagnetic pole is obtained from the top of Member 3 of the Doushantuo Formation in the Jiulongwan section of the Yangtze Gorges area in South China. A total of 191 samples from 23 sites were collected and subjected to stepwise alternating field (AF) and thermal demagnetization. After the removal of a soft component (SC) of viscous magnetic remanence acquired in present geomagnetic field, a high temperature component (HC), likely carried by magnetite, was isolated. The HC inclu...

An integrated paleomagnetic, rock magnetic, and diagenetic study of the Devonian Marcellus Subgroup from threefolds in the Valley and Ridge province in Pennsylvania and West Virginia indicates that the unit contains an intermediate temperature chemical remanent magnetization (CRM) with south-southeast declinations and shallow negative inclinations residing in pyrrhotite and a CRM with more southerly declinations and shallow positive inclinations residing in magnetite. Rock magnetic results confi...

Abstract A relationship between hydrocarbons and their magnetic signatures has previously been alluded to but this is the first study to combine extensive geochemical and magnetic data of hydrocarbon-associated samples. We report a detailed study that identifies a connection between magnetic mineralogy and oil biodegradation within oil-bearing sedimentary units from Colombia, Canada Indonesia and the UK. Geochemical data reveal that all the oil samples are derived from mature type-II kerogens de...
