EL7711 encompasses much of the central part of the Rockvale Adamellite which hosts silver-gold-antimony-arsenic mineralisation both at its margin and within the intrusion on northeast/northwest fracture zones, possibly associated with aplite dykes.
Mineralisation occurs as irregular shoots in altered aplite within the Rockvale Adamellite.
The soils at this location were developed from Mount Duval Adamellite, a coarse-grained component of the New England Granites.
67" Mount Duval adamellite Rockvale S30[degrees]29'20.
The batholith comprises five dome-like plutons that consist of quartz diorite to granodiorite, microcline-porphyritic and equigranular adamellite
with coarse-grained varieties containing muscovite phenocrysts up to 70 mm (Stillman, 2001).
The landscape has formed on the Wallagaraugh Adamellite and supports a native eucalypt forest of low productivity.
coarse-grained adamellite soils in similar climatic regimes) as well as a method to include prediction of [psi]([theta]) and K([theta]) in routine soil survey.
The granitic rocks range from adamellite
, granite to granodiorite.
In the mineral and chemical composition granites, granodiorites, and syenogranites dominate; tonalites and adamellites
occur less often, while quartz diorites, quartz monzonites, and quartz syenites are recorded only in a few drill cores.
