The authors thank the CO2CRC for sponsoring this research and acknowledge the funding provided by the Commonwealth of Australia and industry sponsors through the CO2CRC Program. We thank the State of South Australia for providing Hylogger data, and CSIRO for providing The Spectral Assistant (TSA (TM)) Viewer software. Analytical support was provided by Ben Durrant of GNS Science for thin section preparation, Liz Webber of Geoscience Australia for the XRD analysis, Scott Brindle of Roberston for the QEMSCAN analysis, and Kim Baublys for the stable isotope analysis. We would also like to thank The Resources and Energy Group of the Department for Manufacturing, Innovation, Trade, Resources and Energy (DMITRE) for allowing core viewing and sampling, and Brad Field and Greg Browne (GNS Science) for their helpful comments on the manuscript.
