Abstract Many ore deposits are hosted by metamorphic rocks, and metamorphic fluids have been invoked as a source for various deposits, especially gold deposits. Metamorphic fluid compositions reflect original sedimentary environment: continental shelf sequences yield saline metamorphic fluids with little dissolved gas while metasediments from accretionary and oceanic settings host less saline fluids with significant CO2 contents. The principal difficulty in reconciling ore deposits with a… Expand
