Summary:Major element enrichment trends in this Irish deposit are associated with Lower Carboniferous faulting. These faults are, in places, truncated and displaced by extensional faults which control the location of the orebody. These patterns indicate that mineralization either occurred between the two periods of faulting or was the result of metal-bearing fluids emanating from the faults and using the minor faults to access host rocks enriched in bacteriogenic sulphide.
