Mineral Geochemistry, Deformation and Ore Fluid Evolution in the Capricorn Orogen, WA
MetadataShow full item record
The Capricorn Orogen, Western Australia, has a complex history spanning over a billion years. Regional deformation, metamorphism and magmatism has induced migration of ore fluids into local ore deposits. Mineral geochemistry records the chemical environment of ore precipitation and is employed to determine the source of fluids and age of mineral growth. Integration of mineral geochemistry into complex geological systems is used to identify overprinting fluid and deformation events, and evaluate the formation of ore.
