During the Cambro-Ordovician the muddy sandstone and mudstone of the Glenelg River Complex underwent low grade (greenschist) metamorphism involving one principal phase of deformation (D1), which produced open style folds. K-Ar total-rock ages of well-cleaved slate are 550-570 Ma suggesting a minimum Cambrian age of metamorphism. However, around syn...

... With the exception of small granitic and volcanic protrusions along the Padthaway Ridge, (see hereafter) the Tertiary Murray Basin obscures metasedimentary basement to the east of the Adelaide Fold Belt and the next basement outcrops occur in the Glenelg River Complex in western Victoria (Fig. 1). Although far less well exposed, the Glenelg River Complex has long been inferred to represent the distal eastern equivalents of the Delamerian Orogeny (Turner et al., 1993;Gray et al., 2002;Gibson et al., 2015). Deformed metasediments here exhibit similar westward-vergent structures and low pressure-high temperature metamorphic conditions, and they have been intruded by a similar sequence of granites (Wells, 1956;Turner et al., 1993;Gray et al., 2002;Kemp et al., 2002;Gibson et al., 2015). ...
