The Cambrian Donkey Bore Syncline exposes a salt-withdrawal minibasin filled with more than 500 m (1640 ft) of clastic sediments in the northern part of the Flinders Ranges, South Australia.

Analysis of salt geometries within the Flinders Ranges suggests that the Delamerian orogeny may have commenced during the latest Proterozoic (Mark G. Rowan and Bruno C.
