The refinement of extrusive models for the genesis of nickel deposits
Full report title The refinement of extrusive models for the genesis of nickel deposits: implications from case studies at Honeymoon Well and the Walter Williams Formation
Komatiite sequences at Honeymoon Well (in the northern part of the Agnew – Wiluna belt) and in the Walter Williams Formation (in the Siberia – Menzies – Mt. Ida region), with contrasting styles of komatiite volcanism, have been studied to add to the understanding of the physical volcanology of komatiites and improve recognition of varied volcanic environments in which nickel sulphides occur.
