The Mt Isa-McArthur region is renowned for a range of commodities and deposit types of world-class proportions. The region is described here in the context of a 'mineral system,' through consideration of processes that operate across a range of scales, from geodynamics and crustal architecture, to fluid sources, pathways, drivers and depositional processes. The objective is to improve targeting of Pb-Zn, Cu and Cu-Au deposits. Repeated extension and high heat flow characterise much of the...[Show more]
