WE report the occurrence of extensive sulphate evaporite relicts from the McArthur Group (1,600–1,400 Myr old), Northern Territory (16° 30′S: 135° 30′ E approx), Australia. The McArthur Group comprises a sequence of carbonates, shales, siltstones and sandstones, with a minor volcanic component, of mid-Proterozoic sediments and includes the huge H.Y.C. stratiform Pb–Zn–Ag deposit1.
