U-Th)He dating of late-stage authigenic goethite, combined with corrections for dif- possible mechanisms controlling ferruginiza-fusive loss of 4He by the 4He3He methodology, reveals strong correlation between a sam- tion of the aggraded channel sediments at the. U,Th-He dating of gold. Used in conjunction with other examinations, it can provide evidence of authenticity of a gold object. It can provide a date on objects as young as approximately 150 years in age, and as old as several thousand years. The first results of the U-Th-He dating of native gold from the Pedrolampi (central Karelia) and Witwatersrand (South Africa) deposits are in adequate agreement with available independent geochronological data. Thus, (U-Th)He dates are usually interpreted as cooling ages, with each mineral assigned a closure temperature (TC) corresponding to that age based on the cooling rate, the size of the grain (or its effective diffusion dimension), and the temperature-dependent diffu-sivity of 4He in the mineral.

The most recently developed dating technique applied to phosphates, described in this chapter, uses the accumulation of particles from U and Th series decay, (U-Th)He dating. The errors introduced by assuming homogeneity are quantified.
We report on a new laser-based technique for rapid, quantitative and automated in situ double dating (UPb and (UThSm)He) of minerals, for applications in. After several investigations of (U-Th)He dating of various minerals (e.g., Damon and Kulp 1957 Fanale and Kulp 1962 Damon and Green 1963 Turekian et al. 1970 Bender 1973 Leventhal 1975 Ferreira et al.

We conclude that the inconsistencies between AFTA and apatite (U-Th)He dating arise because of a change in the helium retentivity of apatite as the accumulated radi-ation dose within the crystal lattice increases. Although the (U-Th)He dating technique is calibrated against first principles and does not require standardization, it is invaluable to have mineral standards to monitor procedural performance and to use as benchmarks by which to judge the quality of results and for inter-laboratory comparison. th Annual GRAMMY Awards (2016). Modern He dating, including 4He3He thermochronology, has contributed much to a wide range of geologic and some extraterrestrial studies. Some of the most distinctive properties of the (U-Th)He dating system follow. This paper presents a significantly simplified method for in-situ U-Th-He dating removing the need to know any absolute concentrations or ablation pit volumes. This is done by calculating the normalised U, Th. In particular, efforts at Caltech through the 1990s led to the development of (U-Th)He dating of apatite as a rigorous, quantitative technique (Wolf et al., 1996). Studies of the diffusion systematics of Helium in apatite (Wolf et al., 1998 Farley, 2000). Numerous studies have illustrated the potential of apatite (U-Th)He dating for refin-ing thermal history solutions derived from AFTA (apatite fission track analysis) and VR (vitrinite reflectance) data in hydrocarbon exploration settings, particularly at lower temperatures.
