A Re–Os isochron age is reported for massive sulfides from near the basal contact of the Radio Hill layered mafic‐ultramafic intrusion in the west Pilbara Craton, Western Australia. The isochron age is 2892 ± 34 Ma (mean square of weighted deviates = 1.06) with an initial 187 Os/ 188 Os = 0.1265 ± 0.0028. This age is in agreement with the ages of other nearby layered mafic intrusions that are considered to have a similar geological evolution to the Radio Hill Intrusion.
