Abstract By regrouping late Precambrian volcanic rocks, originally dated by Bielski in southern Israel and northeastern Sinai, and by Lenz et al. in southwestern Jordan, to individual sites, better Rb-Sr isochron ages, namely 535 ± 15 Ma to 523 ± 9 Ma, are obtained for the alkaline rhyolitic association. These are interpreted as the age of the volcanism, which is typified by significant high initial 87 Sr/ 86 Sr ratios of 0.7099 ± 0.0013 to 0.7132 ± 0.0032, which were probably caused by… CONTINUE READING
