Geological Characteristics and Genesis of Mt Carlton High-Sulfidation Epithermal Deposit, and the Implications for Exploration

Indicative Funding
$150,000 over 3 years
Summary
The project aims to A) Document the geological characteristics, particularly the zoning patterns of Mt Carlton, and understand the ore formation processes and factors controlling the positions of orebodies, to help the exploration for similar deposits, and B) to estimate the position of the porphyry deposit related to the Mt Carlton HS deposit, by first estimating the surface projection of the porphyry deposit at depth, and then estimating the depth of the deposit.
Investigators
Zhaoshan Chang, Paul Dirks, Jan Huizenga and Christa Placzek in collaboration with Lars Fredrik Sahlstrom (College of Science & Engineering)
