Mixed messages in iron oxide-copper-gold systems of the Cloncurry district, Australia: insights from PIXE analysis of halogens and copper in fluid inclusions

Baker, T; Mustard, Roger; Fu, Bin; Williams, P J; Dong, Guoyi; Fisher, L A; Mark, G; Ryan, Christopher G


Proterozoic rocks of the Cloncurry district in NW Queensland, Australia, are host to giant (tens to hundreds of square kilometers) hydrothermal systems that include (1) barren regional sodic-calcic alteration, (2) granite-hosted hydrothermal complexes with magmatic-hydrothermal transition features, and (3) iron oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) deposits. Fluid inclusion microthermometry and proton-induced X-ray emission (PIXE) show that IOCG deposits and the granite-hosted hydrothermal complexes contain...[Show more]
