Department of Geology.;]. Gold has historically been a key strategic commodity, and the study of gold deposit formation has long been investigated.

Debate on the genesis of so-called “orogenic gold deposits” (>75% of gold recovered through history; Phillips, ), continues largely because it is difficult to reliably identify the source of this issue of Geology, by: These greenstone belt–scale shear zones lack both gold deposits and gold-related alteration.

Previous interpretations of the shear zones as part of a linked system, as craton-scale terrane boundaries, or as crustal-scale pathways for gold-mineralizing fluids, all appear by: PDF | On Jan 1,S.

World-class mineral deposits include gold, iron, nickel, heavy mineral sands, diamonds and bauxite. From here, gold exploration spread throughout the state. The introduction of ground cancelling metal detectors to Australia in created renewed interest in prospecting that, together with the high price of gold, led to the prospecting boom of the late 's and early 80's.

Solomon. Components. Australia's geology can be divided into several main sections: the Archaean cratonic shields, Proterozoic fold belts and sedimentary basins, Phanerozoic sedimentary basins, and Phanerozoic metamorphic and igneous rocks. Australia as a separate continent began to form after the breakup of Gondwana in the Permian, with the separation of the continental landmass from the African.

The Archaean Norseman-Wiluna Greenstone Belt in the Eastern Goldfield Province contains most of Australia's lode gold deposits, including the famous Kalgoorlie Golden Mile containing the Super Pit. These gold deposits are generally of large tonnage and are confined to the volcanic-intrusive-sedimentary sequences of the greenstone belts and not.

Areas containing primary gold deposits were subject to decomposition; hydraulic denudation being of rare occurrence, accumulation of the detritus on the surface took place. In this, disintegrated portions of primary gold deposits were enclosed.
