The Role of Carbonaceous Material in the Formation of Macraes Orogenic Gold Deposit, New Zealand
MetadataShow full item record
The PhD project investigated the role of carbonaceous material in the formation of Macraes orogenic gold deposits. It provided the first evidence that in-situ carbonaceous material directly contributes to Au incorporation into polyframboids which may provide the source of Au for the Macraes gold deposit; that carbonaceous material in mineralized rocks of gold deposit is most likely hydrothermally deposited and contributes to Au precipitation indirectly; and that dodecanethiol may transport Au in hydrothermal systems.

Resolving the role of carbonaceous material in gold precipitation in metasediment-hosted orogenic gold depositsHu, Siyu; Evans, Katy; Craw, D.; Rempel, Kirsten; Grice, Kliti (2017)Carbonaceous material (CM) is commonly associated with gold and sulfides in metasediment-hosted orogenic gold deposits. The role of CM in Au deposition is controversial; CM has been proposed to contribute to gold deposition ...
