The authors regret that typographical and calculation errors occurred in Table 1 and some related figures. Corrected versions of Table 1, Figs. 4–6 are reproduced below. These errors do not affect the conclusions of the original paper and we summarise the main changes to Section 4 below. We calculate revised and values of 0.041692 ± 0.000024 (0.058%) and 0.16989 ± 0.00015 (0.087%), respectively. The former value is indistinguishable from the average value of 0.041680 ± 0.000050 (0.096%) reported by Phillips and Matchan (2013) [Geochim. Cosmochim. Acta 121, 229–239]. Other corrections in Table 1 relate to typographical errors and inconsistent propagation of uncertainty levels (2σ vs 1σ uncertainties) associated with some mean and plateau ages. The authors would like to apologize for any inconvenience these errors may have caused.
