Magnetite and epidote chemistry and textures at Las Bambas Cu-Au-Fe skarn, Peru: assessing district and deposit-scale fertilityimplications for ore genesis and exploration (2016)$8,000
Description
The ultimate goal of this PhD project is to determine whether magnetite and/or epidote have potential for exploration vectoring and fertility assessment at Las Bambas. This goal will be achieved by addressing the following research questions and associated sub-questions (outcomes are italicized and stated in parentheses after each question). Note that if early investigation highlights fundamental barriers to the applicability of these phases, other minerals may be targeted:1) What is the spatial distribution and paragenesis of magnetite and epidote at Las Bambas? (maps, graphic logs and 3-D block models of magnetite abundance, modes of occurrence (vein, replacement, primary igneous, etc), relationships to mineralisation and alteration; protolith controls)2) What are the textural and chemical characteristics of magnetite and epidote at Las Bambas? (detailed images of magnetite and epidote textures generated via ore microscopy, SEM, LA-ICP-MS; chemical analyses and chemical maps generated using electron microprobe, SEM andMagnetite and epidote chemistry at Las Bambas Cu-Au-Fe skarn, Peru PhD Research Plan Page 11 of 13LA-ICP-MS; spatial assessments of geochemical dispersion patterns generated using IOGAS, Leapfrog, and other visualisation software)a. Can mapping of magnetite and/or epidote textures provide information regarding ore genesis and/or proximity to skarn and/or porphyry-style mineralisation?b. Can the trace element compositions of magnetite and/or epidote provide methods for assessing the fertility of discrete prospects and entire districts during reconnaissance sampling of outcropping skarns?c. Can trace element compositions of magnetite and/or epidote provide information regarding ore genesis, proximity to skarn and/or porphyry-style mineralisation?d. Does the trace element chemistry of magnetite and/or epidote provide exploration geochemistry data unobtainable by conventional analytical techniques? (e.g., a broader geochemical footprint than can be defined by whole rock geochemical analyses of rock chip and/or drill core samples)?3) What is the relationship between magnetite, mushketovite and hematite, and how does this affect applicability of mineral chemistry to exploration at Las Bambas (type section style petrographic and chemical analytical work on these phases, similar to (2) above)4) What are the conditions of magnetite and epidote formation? (stable isotopic and fluid inclusion datasets that help to constrain ore genesis at Las Bambas)5) How do the outcomes of this PhD study impact on our genetic and exploration models for Cu-Au-Fe skarns locally and globally? (new models for ore genesis and exploration developed from the detailed geological and geochemical data generated from Las Bambas)
