The Agnew-Wiluna greenstone belt of Western Australia is the largest komatiite-hosted nickel sulfide belt in the world and contains two world-class Ni-Cu-(PGE) deposits and a host of smaller deposits. This study focuses on the broader scale geology of this greenstone belt in order to understand the key controls on the genesis of the komatiite-hosted Ni-Cu-(PGE) deposits, with specific focus on camp to district controls.
