Vein fields are fractured domains of the lithosphere that have been infiltrated by hydrothermal fluids, which deposited minerals in response to changing physico-chemical conditions. Because oxygen is a major component of the infiltrating fluid and the surrounding rock matrix, the oxygen isotope composition of minerals found in veins is used to decipher ancient fluid flow within the lithosphere. We use a numerical model to simulate oxygen isotope transport in the Kokanee Range silver-lead-zinc… CONTINUE READING
