    Abstract

    [Truncated] The Flying Fox komatiite-hosted Ni-Cu-PGE deposit, located in the Forrestania greenstone belt of the Yilgarn craton in Western Australia, is hosted in a deformed and metamophosed volcano-sedimentary succession whixh has been subsequently intruded by granites. Post-minerlisation events have sheared and dismembered the original orebody creating 11 distinct ore shoots and modigying the texture and composition of the original massive sulfide ore. The ore shoots include massive, stringer/vein, and breccia sulfides composed of pyrrhotite, pentlandite, chalcopyrite, and variable abundances of pyrite ranging up to 40 vol percent.
