The front part of this limestone shows megaslab internal deformation, brecciation
and folding, as well as soft sediment deformation in the shale matrix.
and width of mineralization appears to be increasing to the west and at depth.
Also drilling has revealed brecciation
and silica-sulphide flooding accompanied by tongues of mineralised felsic dykes in mineralised metasediments along the 1.
Anomalous gold, silver, and arsenic values appear to be associated with areas of more intense multiple-stage silicification and brecciation
Copper-gold mineralisation is associated with a hydrothermal breccia, with occasional, rare intersections outside the main areas of hydrothermal brecciation
Barney - follow-up drilling of a hole that intersected intense alteration and extensive brecciation
, as well as anomalous pathfinder elements (e.
In preparation for the geophysical work program at the Conjecture Silver Project, further field geological reconnaissance was undertaken with the assistance of Dr Steve Reynolds which identified an area of intense brecciation
and silicification accompanied by relic sulphide box works.
The property hosts 12 known zones of gold mineralization with multiple phases of veining and brecciation
over a 12 kilometre strike length in a southwest trending gold mineralized corridor.
The available evidence suggests the possibility of karst dissolution, collapse and brecciation
, followed by lithification.
likely occurred during both excavation and modification stages.
, and other sedimentary features of the dolomite are well preserved in this massive sheet of microcrystalline quartz.
and fracturing is more common in the brittle chert beds which are often infilled with later pyrrhotite and/or pyrite mineralization.
