Timing of iron oxide Cu-Au-(U) hydrothermal activity and Nd isotope constraints on metal sources in the Gawler Craton, South Australia

Skirrow, Roger G.; Bastrakov, Evgeniy N.; Barovich, K.; Fraser, Geoffrey L.; Creaser, Robert A.; Fanning, Christopher; Raymond, Oliver L.; Davidson, Garry J


The eastern Gawler craton hosts Australia's premier uranium-bearing iron oxide copper-gold (IOCG) belt, the >500-km-long Olympic Cu-Au-(U) province. In addition to the Olympic Dam Cu-U-Au and Prominent Hill Cu-Au deposits, numerous barren and weakly mineralized IOCG prospects are present in the province. New geochronological data for hydrothermal minerals combined with constraints from host-rock ages demonstrate that alteration and associated IOCG mineralization formed between ∼1570 and ∼1600...[Show more]
