Aeromagnetic patterns of half-graben and basin inversion: implications for sediment hosted massive sulphide Pb-Ag-Zn exploration

Betts, P; Giles, D; Lister, Gordon


The inverted extensional basins of the Palaeoproterozoic North Australian Craton are amongst the most metallogenically endowed on earth for sediment-hosted massive sulphide (SHMS) Pb-Zn-Ag deposits. Faults that evolved during the evolution of these basins are an important exploration vector as they have behaved as conduits for mineralizing fluids, controlled facies architecture, and impacted on hydrothermal convection cells. We attempt to map out ancient normal faults using integrated...[Show more]
