Abstract

[Extract] The formation of orogenic gold deposits is generally described as a complex interplay between deformation, permeability, rock strength and hydrothermal fluid pressure. Despite it being widely known that orogenic gold deposits form from low salinity, carbon dioxide-bearing fluids, the importance of this fluid composition in the context of the physical processes of deformation and fluid behaviour is commonly overlooked. In this study we combined fluid inclusion research with structural and numerical modeling in order to link these processes in the world class (10Moz.) Late Archean Sunrise Dam gold deposit.
