Recognition of geochemical footprints of mineral systems in the regolith at regional to continental scales

de Caritat, Patrice; Main, P T; Grunsky, E C; Mann, A W

Description

Understanding the character of Australia's extensive regolith cover is crucial to the continuing success of mineral exploration. We hypothesise that the regolith contains geochemical fingerprints of processes related to the development and preservation of mineral systems at a range of scales. We test this hypothesis by analysing the composition of surface sediments within greenfield regional-scale (southern Thomson Orogen) and continental-scale (Australia) study areas. In the southern Thomson...[Show more]
