Characterization of pentlandite-bearing quartz veins of Kambalda, Western Australia
The Kambalda Dome of the Yilgarn Craton is located in Western Australia and has been historically mined for Ni after the discovery of magmatic sulfide orebodies in 1966. The Ni orebodies consist of komatiite-associated magmatic sulfide deposits which have experienced deformation, metamorphism and plutonism. A complex geologic history at the Kambalda Dome has resulted in the formation of various types of cross-cutting quartz veins that have not yet been fully described and classified. During recent mining activities at the eastern flank of the Kambalda Dome, three types of quartz veins have been ...
