Age and duration of Mississippi Valley–type ore-mineralizing events: Correction
Geology, v. 23, p. 233–236 (March 1995)
The revised estimate for the average length of time it takes to form an MVT ore deposit is 25.2 6 6.5 m.y. using the correct value for the an MVT ore deposit is 25.2 6 6.5 m.y. using the correct value for the rate of APW (Table 1). Note that the paleopole statistics for Central Tennessee have changed slightly from the original paper, incorpo-rating additional data. The updated pole position is at 111.98E, 50.58N (a1–2 = 4.08, a1–3 = 2.18, azimuth = 698) (Lewchuk and Symons, 1996).
