Black carbon-rich chert dikes are common features of early Archean terranes and are especially prominent on the Pilbara Craton of Western Australia. The dikes cut across the local stratigraphy before truncating abruptly at specific stratigraphic horizons where they can be seen to interfinger with the stratigraphic succession. These uniquely Archean dike complexes are enigmatic and raise significant questions about the source of the carbon they contain - is it biogenic, and therefore indicativ...
