Scale-integrated, architectural and geodynamic controls on alteration and geochemistry of gold systems in the Eastern Goldfields Province, Yilgarn Craton
Total Grant Value
2003 - 2005
The premise of this project was that the fluid history of an ore system is reflected by the thermo-chemical gradients and consequently, research on alteration and geochemistry of gold systems combined with research on their architecture and dynamics would enhance explorationists’ ability to predict large tonnage, high-grade gold occurrences.
The numerous report conclusions include improved understanding of multi-fluid flow in ore systems, and mechanisms of high-grade deposition.
This research was continued in M0377.
Keywords: gold deposits, ore system fluid, mineral fluid flow, high-grade gold ore, giant ore deposits
