The St Ives mesothermal gold system, Western Australia - a case of golden aftershocks?
The late orogenic evolution of the Archaean greenstone sequence in the Eastern Goldfields Province of the Yilgarn Craton in Western Australia is characterised by strike-slip tectonics and locally very high, fault-controlled, fluid fluxes. Fluid flow was associated with the formation of many fault-hosted and shear-zone-hosted gold deposits, which are commonly clustered adjacent to high displacement faults or shear zones. In the St Ives goldfield, near Kambalda, fluid flow in a gold-producing...[Show more]
