Aims of the course:
• Demonstrate why so many ore deposits are strongly structurally controlled
• Define the simple principles of “structural control” and structural mapping
• Give you the tools you require to do PRACTICAL str...
• Some theoretical aspects will be addressed
• Examples of kinematics will be covered
• Primary magmatic features and Secondary processes
• Hydrothermal alteration is linked to deformation and commonly directly related to remobilization
• The full economic significance of the dissolution, transport and re-precipitation of massive...
• Mapping Techniques
• Fold Vergence
• Form line mapping
• Antamina Peru is the World’s largest Cu-Zn skarn
• Geodynamic history (mine scale) is covered
• Complex intrusion-mineralisation history
• How do we link Kinematics with Mineralisation ?
• How do you get low angle veins in compression?
• How to place the Wonga and Magdala Lodes into a unified framework?
Keys to geological mapping:
• Collect the data you need, not data for data’s sake
• Map contacts
• Work in plan and section at the same time
• Work in 4D
• Follow geometrical principles-geology is fractal in nature, p...
One of the most significant advances in the arena of predictive technologies is the mineral system approach to understanding ore deposit formation. By recognising processes that occur on a range of scales
