La veta se encuentra encajada en una zona de cizalla sinestral-inversa, con rumbo predominante NS y buzamiento al este (Starling, 2014; 2015) bajo un regimen de deformacion fragil-ductil, que genero milonitizacion de la roca caja, estructuras sigmoidales, boudinage
y contactos veta-caja reactivados con presencia de salbanda (Londono et al., 2009).
This transitional rheological context, which was contemporary to gold deposition, is supported by field evidence including brittle-ductile auriferous faults (with low-T mylonitization) as well as cross-cutting relationships between pure tensile gold-bearing veins and ductile features (folding on various scales and boudinage
The upper Cretaceous compression from the south caused refolding, scaling and boudinage
of the nappe structures (Birkenmajer, 1974).
Based on their structural relationships with the host rock, various topologies, mainly of quartz veins, are recognizable at outcrop scale: 1) Millimeter to centimeter-scale quartz veins, which are concordant with the metamorphic foliation developing boudinage
. These veins are contemporaneous with the foliation, preceding the metamorphic rock deformation.
The development of sheet structure, foliation, boudinage
, and related features.
These features include conspicuous variations in the orientation of the intersection lineation, rootless folds that are cross-cut by cleavage, and boudinage
and fragmentation of siltstone layers, all absent in the overlying and underlying members.
The resulting boudinage
show that ductile deformation went on after formation of iron oxides (hematite) and dolomitic-marble host rock (Figure 3(b)).
Pilot Gold reports that the Western Flank area hosts numerous features that are similar to the geology at the Long Canyon deposit located approximately 75 kilometres (47 miles) to the north, including evidence of potential boudinage
of a 100 metre-thick dolomite horizon and focusing of gold mineralization in and around this boudin neck area, which strikes north-northeast.
Subiendo estratigraficamente, se reconocen niveles de cuarcitas de grano medio de matriz violacea oscura, con estructuras de boudinage
de colores blanquecinos, las que presentan calcosilicatacion, (posible protolito carbonatado, Figura No.
However, viscous flow is not completely disregarded because of the presence of boudinage
. The emplacement process of this pluton will fit better a description of emplacement-ascent driven by buoyancy and regional stress as a viscoelastic diapir in the sense of Miller and Paterson (1999), where the rheologic behavior of the country rock varies both temporally and spatially from brittle to ductile.
Mas bien, lo que se observan son espesos depositos (lavas y epiclastos) con claras evidencias de remobilizacion a modo de megadeslizamientos, tales como: estructuras plasticas en las rocas volcanoclasticas suaves (boudinage
, diques clasticos, lentes y estructuras en "cometa"), coladas altamente fracturadas, bloques rotados e incluidos en otros depositos subraya e infrayacentes, fallas intraformacionales, etc.
In trap sites in the hinges of the folds associated with the boudinage
and hydrothermal fracture zones, vanadium-bearing green grossular (tsavorite) formed; over considerable time the grossular reacted to form calcite, quartz and vanadium-bearing zoisite (tanzanite).
