... monzogranite. Greenstones at Coolgardie preserve a broad metamorphic gradient, with peak metamorphic temperature varying from 480°± 50°C at the center of the gold field to 545°± 50°C adjacent to the western granitoid-greenstone contact, at an approximate pressure of 3 to 4 kbar. Gold field-scale variations...

...; Spooner, 1991 , Ridley et al. 1994 ). The Mount Charlotte gold deposit in the Eastern Goldfields Province of Western Australia is one of the oldest bulk-mining operations in the Kalgoorlie gold field ( Clout et al. 1990 ). Mineralization associated with sulfide-rich alteration of a gabbro sill...

... 100 years. Influenced by the empirical observation that gold deposits are rarely found in regions without exposed igneous bodies, researchers in the first half of the twentieth century (e.g., Lindgren, 1933 ; Emmons, 1937 ) drew heavily on field exam ples from both cratons to support the idea...

... the waning stages of hornblende- and albite-bearing porphyry dike emplacement at 2650 ± 6 Ma and regional metamorphism. Subsequent brittle deformation in the Kalgoorlie gold field was accompanied by hydrothermal activity that may have led to some late gold mineralization or remobilization in extensional...

In contrast, some authors classify certain Archean gold deposits as “skarn deposits” ( Mueller, 1991 , 1997 ) based on the presence...
