Scale-integrated, architectural and geodynamic controls on alteration and geochemistry of gold systems in the Eastern Goldfields Province, Yilgarn Craton
Total Grant Value
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
