Reef Geology Theory

2 posts in this topic

Sometimes what we "know" is more about what we believe.

 

Over the last seven years Dr Stuart Bull and Professor Ross Large
have been studying the geology and chemistry of the rocks that surround
the Bendigo gold reefs in Victoria, using the most up-to-date
technology.
 

They have found that rather than the gold-rich fluids coming from
great depth - between 10 and 15 kilometres - the gold was more likely
sourced by erosion of adjacent mountain ranges at the time of
sedimentation of the rock sequence.
