Gold mineralization at the Victory mine, Kambalda, is associated with discrete metasomatic alteration zones around quartz breccia zones, shear zones, and quartz vein arrays. The mineralogy, textures, and whole-rock chemistry of the wall-rock alteration zones are described for several different host rocks. Mineral assemblages at zone boundaries, calcite-dolomite geothermometry, and amphibole geobarometry have been used to estimate the temperature, pressure, and fluid composition associated with metasomatism. Fluid inclusion data have been used to estimate independently these conditions.

Wall-rock alteration zones extend up to 3 m from veins and breccias at the Victory mine. Textures indicate that the zoned wall-rock...
