Here we report the application of this method to dating of gold mineralization, through the case study of an auriferous deposit in Diamantina in Brazil.
Key to these studies is the reliable estimation of the age of ancient specimens.
High-resolution age estimates can often be obtained using radiocarbon dating, and, while precise and powerful, this method has some biases, making it of interest to directly use genetic data to infer a date for samples that have been sequenced.
To infer the age of ancient genomes, we take advantage of the shared history of Neanderthal gene flow into non-Africans that occurred around 50,000 y ago and measure the amount of “missing evolution” in terms of recombination breakpoints in the ancient genome compared with present-day samples.
We show that this method provides age estimates that are highly correlated to radiocarbon dates, thus documenting the promise of this approach.
