It is interesting to note that the multiple-outlier type discordancy tests applied at the strict 99% confidence level identified two samples as having discordant data and incidentally both samples plotted in a field different from the continental rift, that is, they represent mis-discrimination (see solid diamond symbol in figure 2a-e and number enclosed in [] in Table 30).
