Nature and longevity of hydrothermal fluid flow and mineralisation in granites of the Bushveld Complex, South Africa

Robb, L; Freeman, L; Armstrong, Richard

Description

The Lebowa Granite Suite of the Bushveld Complex is a large, 2054 Ma old, A-type Batholith, characterised by numerous relatively small magmato-hydrothermal, polymetallic ore Deposits. The mineralisation is represented by a three-stage paragenetic sequence: early magmatic Sn-W-Mo-F ores (600 °C > T > 400 °C), followed by a Cu-Pb-Zn-As-Ag-Au paragenesis (400 °C > T > 200 °C) and then late-stage Fe-F-U mineralisation (< 200 °C). The first stage of Mineralisation (typified by the endogranitic...[Show more]
