Structural controls on fluid movement during deformation and mineralisation at the Porgera gold deposit, Papua New Guinea

Munroe, Stuart McRae

Description

The Porgera gold mine is a large, high-grade, vein and fault-hosted deposit located in the highlands of Papua New Guinea. Gold mineralisation at Porgera is spatially associated with oxidised, hydrous magmas of the Porgera Intrusive Complex.
