This Vale-UQ Geoscience project aims to provide a geochemical framework of stable carbon isotopic changes within the coal-bearing stratigraphy of the Moatize lease and greater Moatize Basin. Stable carbon isotopes (δ13C) are a competent and proven tool for tracking changes in palaeoclimate and palaeoenvironment within organic matter, in this instance, coal.
