Abstract

A 2.2 m thick, Late Eocene (?) dike that intruded the Devonian Buchan Caves Limestone, near Murrindal, Victoria, has produced a narrow contact aureole only centimeters wide in the adjacent host rock. The lack of response of the Buchan Caves Limestone to contact metamorphism is attributed to: 1) prior heating to near 200??C; and 2) the fact that the dike intruded into cool, near surface, low-porosity rocks which may have been in the vadose zone. -from Authors
