Documentation of important ore deposits provides the research and exploration communities with a legacy of descriptive and measurement-based data that forms a baseline for comparison and underpins the continuous improvement process of the relevant genetic model. The general genetic model for volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposits is arguably the most robust of all. Model refinements, from which we should draw ever more effective exploration criteria, are in part based on thorough research of some of the more unusual “end-members” of any ore deposit type. Such is the volume on the Greens Creek deposit. Taylor and Johnson have assembled much new...
