  • Modern Analogues

    Common Deposit Characteristics
    1. Non-intuitive deposit distributions, including some >5 km away from jog
    2. Adjacent to regional-scale shear zones BUT hosted in subsidiary structures
    3. Deposits cluster, clusters are spaced semi-regularly along-strike

  • New Concepts for Ore Shoot Targeting: Course Introduction

    The current paradigm for understanding the formation of ore shoots in many ore deposit types is flawed.
    A new paradigm centred around how fluid flow is organised in the lithosphere leads to new concepts for exploring for ore shoots.

  • A New Perspective: Ore Shoots as as Fluid Exit Conduits

    • Proposed that most ore deposits can be considered as forming in transient fluid-exit conduits, associated with the episodic rupture of over-pressured reservoirs at depth (Hronsky, 2011).
    • Represent examples of self-organised critical systems.
    • Pro...

  • Failure of the Current Paradigm

    • Oreshoots not following kinematic model
    • Vertical stockwork pipes with no bounding shear zone/fault
    • Complex oreshoot networks
    • Multiple hydrothermal events widely spaced in time using same pathway
    • Ultrahigh grade veins

  • Exploring Under Cover for the Next Generation of Australian Discoveries

    Australia often incorrectly perceived as mature – 80% of landmass under cover, nation-wide commitment and alignment of geoscience initiatives to overcome the cover challenge – turning cover into opportunity, recent exploration shows the success of such commitment in...

  • Chemical Characteristics, Geodynamic Settings and Petrogenesis of Copper-Ore-Forming Arc Magmas

    This lecture will explore the chemical evolution of fractionally crystallising, intermittently replenished, intermittently tapped magma chambers at Moho-type pressures and shows that these processes tend to produce, after several replenishment and crystallisation cycles, except...

  • Chemical Characteristics, Geodynamic Settings and Petrogenesis of Gold-Ore-Forming Arc Magmas

    Chemical analyses of least-altered samples of subduction-generated intrusives parental to 50 major Au deposits and 57 Au+Cu deposits of Phanerozoic age worldwide are compared with analyses of thousands of volcanic and hypabyssal igneous rocks from unmineralised Neogene- Quatern...
