The southwest Pacific is host to a number of mineralization styles, including numerous world-class porphyry Cu-Au and epithermal Au-Ag deposits (Cooke et al., 2005; Garwin et al., 2005). The majority of the giant porphyry and epithermal Au and Cu deposits were formed within a series of middle to late Cenozoic (25–1 Ma) arcs (Garwin et al., 2005; Maryono et al., 2018). These arcs form a complex boundary between the Eurasian, Pacific, and Indian-Australian tectonic plates, stretching from Japan in the northeast and Myanmar in the northwest, through the Philippines, Indonesia, New Guinea, and the...
