Mineralogy and geochemistry of the weathered zone over some Archaean base-metal deposits in Western Australia
Copper is a useful pathfinder for nickel sulphide mineralisation and some styles of gold mineralisation.
An understanding of copper’s geochemistry and its dispersion in deep, highly weathered and often polygenic soils particularly widespread in WA is developed.
