Most Western Australian komatiite-hosted nickel-sulphide deposits have undergone variable degrees of metamorphism. In this study, we investigated microstructures in massive nickel-sulphides from high- and lowgrade metamorphic rocks by combining optical microscopy, electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) and laser ablation inductively coupled mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS).
