Fracture sealing of quartzite under a temperature gradient: experimental results
Veined lithologies are formed by fracturing and sealing processes, with the veins representing former fluid conduits through the rock. Although detailed fieldwork and numerical simulations have provided a better understanding of vein growth, few studies have attempted to seal fractures and generate veins experimentally. In this pilot study, we subjected fractured quartzite to temperature gradients of 45-125 °C under hydrothermal conditions in a static fluid, with the aim of precipitating...[Show more]
