The Tookoonooka impact structure is a subsurface structure of the Eromanga Basin in Australia. Impact ejecta have recently been discovered in the stratigraphy proximal to the structure. The ejecta includes accretionary and armored impacto-clasts. They are observed at multiple locations in drill core across central Australia, spanning 375,000 km2 within possible impact tsunami deposits. Typical characteristics of the accretionary impactoclasts include a distinctive brownish-gray color, flattened shapes, concentric zonation, and a variety of morphologies with and without obvious nuclei. Some complex accretionary impactoclasts include melt components. Apparent diameters of these impactoclasts in drill core are commonly less than 2...
