Shoshonitic magmatism and the formation of the Northparkes porphyry Cu-Au deposits, New South Wales

Lickfold, Vanessa; Cooke, David R.; Crawford, Anthony James; Fanning, Christopher


Four economic porphyry Cu-Au deposits occur at Northparkes, New South Wales: Endeavour 22 (E22), E26, E27 and E48. Mineralisation is centred on thin, pipe-like Late Ordovician to Early Silurian quartz monzonite porphyry complexes. Nine intrusive phases have been recognised, with a common sequence of emplacement recognised in all deposits. Pre-mineralisation intrusions include coarse-grained, equigranular monzodiorite and equigranular to weakly porphyritic biotite-quartz monzonite (U-Pb SHRIMP...[Show more]
