...P. C. Eaton; T. N. Setterfield Abstract The shoshonitic Tavua caldera in Viti Levu, Fiji, defines the volcanic center of the Tavua volcano. The caldera occurs at the intersection of the northeast-trending Viti Levu lineament and a northwest-trending lineament, locally manifested by the Nasivi shear...

... along the >250-km east-northeast–trending Viti Levu lineament. They are spatially associated with alkaline rocks of almost identical age (~5.4–4.6 Ma) and having a shoshonitic affinity. The gold mineralization in both deposits is spatially and genetically related to monzonite intrusions and to a low...
