Information

Just 5klm down the road from the homestead toward Sandstone is the Yarrabubba Meteor Impact site,At Yarrabubba, evidence for impact includes shatter cones, planar deformation features (PDFs) in quartz, pseudotachylites and impact breccias, all within the muscovite-bearing Yarrabubba Granite. The centre of the structure is the Barlangi Granophyre, a skeletal-textured felsic rock that is interpreted to have intruded as a multi-lobed sheet of sub-crater impact melt derived from the Yarrabubba Granite. The original size of the structure is not known, but some impact effects have been seen in outcrop at least 10 km north (the limit of outcrop) and 9 km south of Barlangi Rock. There is also a 25 x 15 km zone of flat aeromagnetic signature that may represent demagnetisation of the regional granites as a result of the impact.
