Abstract

Over half a century of research on and mining of the Proterozoic, shale-hosted Mount Isa copper orebodies has not removed the shadows of doubt from genetic models for this deposit. The controversy stems from a broad range of seemingly conflicting datasets, and also the insistence by many researchers that a single model adequately describes the ore genesis. This contribution aims to present the different models with as little bias as possible, and attempts to come up with a more comprehensive explanation for the genesis of this extraordinary giant, both in its local and regional context.
