Abstract

A dismembered metamorphosed ophiolite on Timor is connected with Jurassic rifting of Australia's northwestern margin. The rift developed into an ocean basin which carried a microcontinental block northwards. During the middle to late Cretaceous the block accreted to south-east Asia and experienced a low grade metamorphism which generated crossitic amphibole.
