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.
