A New Geochemical Technique for Gold Exploration: Alkali Element Mobility Associated with Gold Mineralization in the West Australian Goldfields
This study tests the hypothesis that alkali element mobility can be used as a tool to monitor fluid flow associated with gold-bearing hydrothermal systems and as a geochemical vector for locating new gold deposits. This was achieved by analyzing 114 samples of two mafic rock types from four localities in the Archean Yilgam craton of Western Australia: the giant Golden Mile deposit at Kalgoorlie, the smaller Victory mine at Kambalda, two drill holes that intersected subeconomic mineralization 8...[Show more]
