Understanding mineral formation and processing: How the solution lies in hydrothermal fluids

Allan Pring, Joël Brugger

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Over the last 15 years the Mineralogy Department of the South Australian (SA) Museum has become one of the powerhouses in fundamental research on the formation of ore minerals not only in Australia, but also across the world. Our research group explores the physics and chemistry of ore deposit formation, applying state-of-the-art experimental techniques to study the transport and deposition of metals and mineral-microbe-fluid interaction in geological environments.
