Geochemical anatomy of silica iron exhalites: evidence for hydrothermal oxyanion cycling in response to vent fluid redox and thermal evolution (Mt Windsor subprovince, Australia)

Davidson, Garry J; Stolz, A J; Eggins, Stephen

Description

In the Cambro-Ordovician Mount Windsor subprovince, well known for its massive sulfide deposits, silica iron oxide exhalites possess complex textural and geochemical features that provide an insight into the very early stages of typical massive sulfide deposits development. In exploration they are also useful for identifying hotter systems most likely to host massive sulfide deposits. Three examples were mapped and sampled from outcrop and analyzed for magnetic susceptibility, major and trace...[Show more]
