Chalcophile element fertility and the formation of porphyry Cu +/- Au deposits

Park, Jung-Woo; Campbell, Ian H.; Malaviarachchi, Sanjeewa P. K.; Cocker, Helen; Hao, Hongda; Kay, Suzanne Mahlburg


Chalcophile element fertility, the chalcophile metal abundance in the source magma, is likely to be a critical factor for the formation of porphyry Cu ± Au deposits. In this study, we provide evidence to support this hypothesis by comparing the platinum group element (PGE) geochemistry of barren and ore-bearing Cu ± Au granitic suites. We report the PGE contents of three barren volcanic and subvolcanic suites from Argentina and Japan and two Cu ± Au bearing suites from Indonesia and Chile....[Show more]
