We have measured multiple sulfur isotope ratios ( 34 S/ 33 S/ 32 S) for sulfide sulfur in shale and carbonate lithofacies from the Hamersley Basin, Western Australia. The v 33 S values (v 33 SWN 33 S30.515UN 34 S) shift from 31.9 to +6.9x over a 22-m core section of the lower Mount McRae Shale (V2.5 Ga). Likewise, sulfide sulfur analyses of the Jeerinah Formation (V2.7 Ga) yield v 33 S values of 30.1 to +8.1x over a 50-m section of core. Despite wide variations in v 33 S and N 34 S, these two… Expand
