Re os isotopic dating of molybdenites ultrasound dating scan
These ages suggest that the mineralization in the Kafang skarn deposit was genetically assoicatted to the Laoka granite.
The Re contents of molybdenite indicate that ore-forming materials are derived from mantle and crust.
Furthermore, even this “gold standard” has unresolved uncertainties due to the U decay constants being imprecisely known, and to measured variations of the U ratio in terrestrial rocks and minerals and in meteorites.
Both of these factors are so critical to the U-Pb method, as well as the additional factor of knowing the initial concentrations of the daughter and index isotopes, so it should not be used as a standard to determine other decay constants. U-Pb systematics of phosphates from equilibrated ordinary chondrites.
Thus the per year respectively have now been adopted for standard use by the uniformitarian geological community. This value is essentially identical to the best of the recent determinations using groups of iron meteorites.
These values are based on determinations recalibrating Re-Os model ages of molybdenites by forcing them (essentially by circular reasoning) to agree with the U-Pb concordia-Pb-Pb intercept ages of zircons from the same 11 magmatic-hydrothermal systems dating from ca. It is also within the ± uncertainty range of the half-life values obtained by the best of the physical direct counting and in-growth experiments.
2001; Steiger and Jäger 1977), in spite of ongoing attempts (Miller 2012).
AIRIE established the protocol for successful Re-Os dating of molybdenite, from mineral separation to treatment of isotopic data.
We developed a double Os spike to address young (or low Re) molybdenites, and forwarded a new molybdenite reference material that is distributed by NIST for global interlaboratory comparison.
In any case, the half-life of Re has been shown to be dependent on environmental conditions such as the degree of ionization.
Fluctuations in nuclear decay rates have also been observed to correlate with solar activity for a few other isotopes, while there is evidence decay rates of the radioisotopes used for rock dating have not been constant in the past.

Yet much research effort remains to be done to make further inroads into not only uncovering the flaws intrinsic to these long-age dating methods, but towards a thorough understanding of radioisotopes and their decay during the earth’s history within a biblical creationist framework.
