Electron microprobe analysis and Ar-Ar age dating of polyhalite from the evaporitic Permian Haselgebirge Formation

Christoph Leitner, Franz Neubauer, Johann Genser & Manfred Bernroider
To test polyhalite age dating of the mineral polyhalite [K2Ca2Mg(SO4)4·2H2O], samples of the evaporitic Permian Haselgebirge Formation were collected in the Eastern Alps. Samples were taken from two salt bodies. The salt body of Altaussee (UTM 33T 405316 5278325) has a vertical thickness of >800 m. Samples were collected in the Altaussee mine (ALT). The salt body of Bad Dürrnberg-Berchtesgaden (UTM 33T 351091 5278007) is at least 1000 m thick. The salt body comprises two...
