Key Controls on the Quality (Size and/or Grade) of Metal Deposits in Volcanic and Sedimentary Basins – S03

Convenors:
Steve Piercey (Memorial University)
Sarah Gleeson (Helmholtz Center, Postdam)
Summary:
Ores in sedimentary and volcanic basins (e.g., VMS, SEDEX, Fe, sediment-hosted Cu) provide critical sources of base and precious metals globally. This session will examine controls on the quality of deposits and the various processes that influence size and grade, ranging from cratonic scale to nano-scale. Presentations that range from field-based through to microanalytical studies in areas such as (but not limited to): crustal and basin architecture, magmatism, structure and tectonics, fluid and metal sources, emplacement and depositional mechanisms, paleoceanography and basin redox, and models and modeling of ore forming processes, are encouraged

Keynote speakers include :
Dr. David Huston (Geoscience Australia – Mineral deposits in time)
Types of presentation: Talks (up to 16) and Posters
