An apparatus to experimentally model the dynamics of ductile shear zones

We present a ring-shear apparatus designed to deform soft, ductile rock analogues to arbitrarily high shear strains in simple shear, in experiments attempting to model processes that occur in natural ductile shear zones. The sintered specimen is deformed between two unsupported cylinders by two rotating grips, under a normal and shear stress up to 5 MPa and at temperatures up to 600 K. First results of experiments with octachloropropane (OCP, C3C18) and camphor (C10Hl6O) are presented.

An Atlas of Carboniferous Basin Evolution in Northern England / Атлас эволюции каменноугольных бассейнов в Северной Англии

Why an atlas of the Carboniferous in northern England? There can hardly be a more researched system in the whole of the British Isles, given its widespread distribution at outcrop and annual appearance in numerous PhD theses (including our own). But perhaps all we really know about the Carboniferous is no more than skimming the surface. In this atlas, using modern multifold seismic and borehole data collected by the oil industry in its search for petroleum accumulations, we can start to look beyond the surface exposures and gain some new insights into the structure and stratigraphy of the subsurface (and surface) Carboniferous. The main elements of this atlas are: (i) a series of regional seismic lines crossing all the basinal areas in northern England illustrating the Carboniferous in section, and (ii) a set of palaeofacies maps describing the evolution of the system in map view.

An evaluation of fluid inclusion microthermometric data for orpiment-realgar-calcite-barite-gold mineralization at the betze and carlin mines, Nevada

Carlin-type deposits contain gold in association with main-stage quartz-pyrite-kaolinite mineralization and late-stage orpiment-realgar-calcite-barite mineralization. Fluid characteristics for main-stage mineralization are well documented by fluid inclusion and stable isotope studies on quartz. In contrast, fluid characteristics for late-stage mineralization are not well constrained because of large ranges in fluid inclusion microthermo-metric data. These ranges could represent real variations in fluids or be a result of the reequilibration of fluid inclusions.

Microthermometric analyses were conducted on fluid inclusions in samples of barite, calcite, realgar, and or-piment from the Betze and Carlin mines, Nevada. Petrographic studies of individual crystals and cleaved sections reveal that fluid inclusions in realgar and barite have negative crystal shapes, in contrast to elongate and rounded inclusions in orpiment and calcite. Point-count data document that one-phase liquid inclusions (type 1) are the dominant type in barite and realgar, relative to two-phase, vapor-poor inclusions (type 2) in calcite and orpiment. Type 2 inclusions in realgar and barite commonly reequilibrate (e.g., stretch) during analysis and exhibit ranges in homogenization temperatures (Th) of 100º to 250ºC and 110º to 300ºC, respectively. In contrast, type 2 inclusions in orpiment and calcite have Th of 108º to 182ºC, which could be repeated to within 1ºC. Based on these results, fluid inclusions in barite and realgar are most susceptible to reequilibration, with Th of ~100º to 110ºC most representative. Fluid salinities for orpiment and calcite are 1.7 to 5.4 wt percent NaCl equiv, relative to 1.1 to 2.9 wt percent NaCl equiv for barite and realgar. The lower Th and salinity for fluid inclusions in barite and realgar suggest fluid cooling and dilution, following the deposition of paragenetically earlier orpiment and calcite.

An introduction to applied geostatistics

This began as an attempt to write the book that we wish we had read when we were trying to learn geostatistics, a task that turned out to be much more difficult than we originally envisaged. To the many people who provided encouragement, support, and advice throughout the writing of this book, we are very grateful.

We owe a lot to Andre Journel, without whom this book would never have been written. In addition to providing the support necessary for this project, he has been an insightful technical reviewer and an energetic cheerleader.

Anatomy of porphyry-related Au-Cu-Ag-Mo mineralised systems: Some exploration implications

Analyses of exploration and mining case studies as well as magmatic arc geothermal systems have facilitated an understanding of the implications to explorationists of the anatomy of porphyry related Au-Cu-Mo-Ag mineralising systems. Deeply eroded magmatic source rocks tend to host sub economic mineralisation, which may become focused in the highly prospective in overlying apophyses to spine-like polyphasal intrusions. Buried targets may be identified by analyses of zoned alteration and mineralisation developed by complex overprinting relationships. Mineralised fluids may exit from the magmatic source migrating to higher crustal levels to form epithermal deposits. High sulphidation epithermal Au + Cu + Ag deposits display characteristic alteration and mineralisation zonation which aids target generation and in some instances evolve to host marginal and overprinting lower sulphidation ores which display improved metallurgy and metal grades. Low sulphidation epithermal Au-Ag deposits are categorised as a number of styles, linked on an overall anatomy, which display considerable variation in metal grade, size, form and metallurgy, typically governed by setting and crustal level of formation, as well as controls to vein formation such as: host rock competency, structure, and mechanism of Au deposition. All these controls and zonation pattern vectors provide valuable tools to explorationists in the search for hidden ores.

Annales geologiques du service des mines. Recherches sur les faunes albiennes de Madagascar

Dans un mémoire, qui a été publié dernièrement dans les Annales géologiques du Service des Mines de Madagascar (1), j'ai décrit une faune albienne remarquable, caractérisée par l'abondance des Ammonites des Genres Douvillei-ceras, Lemuroceras et Brancoceras, et j'ai donné une coupe, selon Henri Besairie, du gisement principal de ces fossiles, situé dans la région d'Ambarimaninga, cercle de Sitampiky (Madagascar).

Au sommet de la coupe, c'est-à-dire au-dessus des couches principales à Ammonites que j'ai rapportées au sommet de l'Albien inférieur (Dou-villeicératien) et à la base de l'Albien moyen (partie inférieure de l'Oxytropidocératien) suivant l'échelle stratigraphique établie par Maurice Breistroffer (2), existe un banc fossilifère à Echinides épais de 1 m, où Henri Besairie a recueilli de très nombreux Oursins qui font l'objet du présent mémoire.

Applied Concepts in Fractured Reservoirs /  Прикладные концепции в трещиноватых коллекторах

This book is a companion to our previous Atlas of Natural and Induced Fractures in Core, moving on from the basic recognition of fracture types described in that volume, which must be the foundation of any fracture study, to explanations of how those fractures form, how they are measured, how they can be assessed, and how they affect reservoirs.

This volume is the summary of decades of experience with industry doing applied fracture studies. It brings together numerous fracture-related topics that are not collected elsewhere. We hope that it will be useful to both academia and industry, and that it is not in the vein of the apocryphal third-grader doing a book report on penguins, who concluded that “This book tells me more than I want to know about penguins.” <...>

Applied geochemistry. Advances in mineral exploration techniques / Прикладная геохимия. Достижения в области методов разведки полезных ископаемых

Successful exploration for mineral resources depends on integrated application of our understanding of the geology that hosts ore deposits, and their geochemical and geophysical expressions. Geochemistry is one of the oldest exploration techniques, but it is also one of the most modern. In its earliest form, it involved tracing alluvial minerals, especially gold, back to their source. Over time, it has developed as a result of improved analytical techniques, different sampling media, changes in extraction methods, and improvements in data processing and presentation to become the versatile and sophisticated suite of methods available to modern explorers.

Architecture of the earth

The magical instruments of the astronomer reveal no element new to chemistry and show the earth to be a marvellously complete sample of the universe of matter, whether in planet, star, nebula, galaxy, or super-galaxy. Thus from earth science comes a better understanding of the universe. Geology, tracing the dramatic history of one of the celestial wanderers, deepens our concept of Time and still further broadens the foundation of a sound philosophy. Pierre Termier meant much when he wrote: "The earth declares the glory of God." He had devoted his life to a study of the stately processes that have governed the evolution of our globe through two billions of years. Yet, like other professional geologists, he found ordinary words inadequate for the new, unfamiliar ideas. Technical terms have had to be invented. Here is a difficulty when the geologist attempts to tell his story. Technicality puts a barrier between the specialists and the great public or even the beginner in the professional study of earth's history. For this trouble there is only one medicine—good-will. However, with good-will on both sides the geologist can share with others the thrills that spring from an incomparable moving picture.
