Paragenesis and composition of ore minerals in the Randalls BIF-hosted gold deposits, Yilgarn Craton, Western Australia: Implications for the timing of deposit formation and constraints on gold sources

Steadman, Jeffery A.; Large, Ross Raymond; Davidson, Garry J; Bull, Stuart W.; Thompson, Jay; Ireland, Trevor; Holden, Peter

Description

The Randalls district comprises three individual gold deposits - Cock-Eyed Bob, Maxwells, and Santa-Craze - hosted in the same unit of banded iron-formation (BIF) in the southern Eastern Goldfields Superterrane, Yilgarn Craton, Western Australia. The iron formation is a silicate/oxide-facies unit with overprinting sulfides, and has undergone metamorphism (upper-greenschist facies) and deformation (two generations of folds). The gold deposits are hosted in two structural locations: hinge zones...[Show more]
