Fluid plays a key role in the formation of giant iron-oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) deposits according to either fluid mixing or unmixing models (e.g. Barton & Johnson 1996, Pollard 2001). Our previous work shows some evidence for fluid mixing processes in the formation of both regional alteration assemblages and deposits from the Mount Isa Eastern Succession, NW Queensland, Australia (Fu et a1. 2003). In this study, we investigated aqueous inclusions in regional qUaliz veins associated with albitisation using state-of-the-art microanalytical techniques.
