Progressive fault triggering and fluid flow in aftershock domains: Examples from mineralized Archean fault systems

Micklethwaite, Steven; Cox, Stephen


In strike-slip fault systems, Coulomb failure stress changes due to mainshocks can trigger large aftershocks or further earthquakes. The combination of static stress changes from mainshocks and large aftershocks potentially has a profound influence on the final distribution of aftershocks and crustal-scale fluid redistribution. Because mineralization acts as a high fluid flux indicator the interaction of static stress changes, fault triggering and fluid flow can be studied from mineralized...[Show more]
