The character and chronology of tectonothermal events are described for provinces and sub‐provinces exposed in the Coen Region (Coen and Yambo Inliers) of north Queensland. These include the Proterozoic Yambo Subprovince, Savannah and Iron Range Provinces, and the Palaeozoic Pama and Kennedy Provinces. North Queensland underwent two major crust‐forming periods on a pre‐1800Ma basement, a Proterozoic period (1800–1550 Ma) and a second Palaeozoic period (430–280 Ma). The intervening ∼ 1000… CONTINUE READING
