Stratiform sediment-hosted Zn-Pb-Ag mineral deposits constitute about 40% of the Earth's zinc resources (Allen 2001), and in most cases their genesis involves the discharge of basinal brines near or on the seafloor through syndepositional faults (Sangster 2002). From the point of view of base metal exploration, it is therefore essential to identify all possible faults that formerly carried the upwelling ore-forming solutions during mineralising events. This paper presents a numerical… CONTINUE READING
