    the processes which produce sediments and the sedimentary rocks formed by them. These processes act on rocks after they have been moved from the Earth's interior to its surface and uplifted by mountain building - move materials from a source area to a sink area. Sediments were collected from ten boreholes in the area, and the geochemical and mineralogical data were compared to the grain-size data. Among the chemical indexes, Zr/V, Y/Rb, Y/V, SiO 2 /Al 2 O 3, Fe 2 O 3 /SiO 2, Na/Al increase from pure clay to fine sand together with some mineralogical ratios, including quartz/interstratified illite.

The Heavitree Quartzite covers an area 2 of somekm 2. Figure 7 shows a geological cross-section of part of the Amadeus Basin from north to south.

The Heavitree Quartzite is the earliest sedimentary formation deposited in the basin, being the basal unit deposited over the unassigned crystalline basement. The earlier editions of this book have been used by successive generations of students for more than 20 years, and it is the standard text on the subject in most British universities and many others throughout the world.

Sandstone is converted into quartzite through heating and pressure usually related to tectonic compression within orogenic quartzite is usually white to grey, though quartzites often occur in various shades of pink and red due to varying amounts of iron oxide (Fe 2 O 3).
