Total Grant Value
2013 - 2015
This study documents the geological framework, deformation histories, controls on iron ore formation, multi-stage hypogene and supergene fluid alteration events affecting BIF and the geochemical signatures of their respective high-grade iron ore bodies – a mineral systems model for the genesis of the BIF-hosted iron ore bodies is presented for the Pilbara Craton with implications for iron ore exploration.
