Groundwater flow in playa lake environments: impact on gold and pathfinder element distributions in groundwaters surrounding mesothermal gold deposits, St.Ives area, Eastern Goldfields, Western Australia
Geochemical sampling of groundwater may be an effective tool in exploring for Au deposits in areas of transported overburden. However, to use hydrogeochemistry effectively, we need to understand which elements are useful pathfinders and how their distribution patterns are affected by groundwater flow and geochemistry, especially in areas that have hypersaline groundwater. A hydrogeochemical survey was completed over the strongly Au-endowed St. Ives area of the Eastern Goldfields of Western...[Show more]
