    Abstract

    Stepped heating and crushing experiments have been used to investigate the noble gas and halogen degassing behaviour of quartz in detail. Samples with diverse character were selected from the Eloise and Osborne, Iron Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG) ore deposits, and the Railway Fault, 13 km south of the Mt Isa Mine, in the Proterozoic Mt Isa Inlier of northeast Australia. Quartz has been shown to have a bimodal degassing profile. The first degassing mode at temperatures of
