Microchemical evidence for episodic growth of antitaxial veins during fracture-controlled fluid flow

Barker, Shaun; Cox, Stephen; Eggins, Stephen; Gagan, Michael

Description

The mechanism by which syntectonic hydrothermal veins form is widely debated, with some workers suggesting that certain vein textures are related to specific fluid flow regimes. Central to the debate is whether vein formation involves advective fluid flow, or occurs by local diffusion of material from the surrounding wall rock. To address this issue, we integrated textural observations and microchemical analyses of a hydrothermal vein from the Lachlan Orogen, southeast Australia, to reveal...[Show more]
