Intrusion-Related Hydrothermal Mineral Systems


Circulation of hydrothermal fluids in the Earth’s crust takes place under various tectonic regimes and geological situations, within which a complex array of transitional conditions can lead to a large number of ore deposit types and mineralisation styles that effectively defy a rigorous classification. For this reason descriptions of hydrothermal mineral systems, by necessity, must be regarded as end members or parts of a continuum. This simplification is an expedient to help in the understanding of what are obviously very complex natural systems. Also, it must be remembered that the same geological situation may occur in a number of different tectonic settings. For example, felsic plutonic rocks occur in magmatic arcs related to subduction and in anorogenic rift settings.
