Abstract

The mineralisation process consists of complex interaction and feedback between mechanisms involving deformation, fluid flow, thermal transport and chemical reactions. Through quantitative modelling of specific regions with detailed structure and simple 'what-if' scenarios, we may explore and provide bounds for the various parameters involved in mineralisation and even determine parameters critical for predictive exploration.
