MacFlinCor and its application to fluids in Archean lode-gold deposits
Abstract MacFlinCor was developed to process laboratory data gathered on fluid inclusions and to calculate isochores for geologically important fluids composed of H2O, C02, CH4, NaCl, and N2. WithinExpand

Lode-gold deposits of the Yilgarn block: products of Late Archaean crustal-scale overpressured hydrothermal systems
Abstract Although the lode-gold deposits of the Yilgarn block are hosted by a variety of rocks, and their structural style, associated alteration and ore mineralogy are also variable, commonExpand
