Abstract

The Harris Greenstone Belt in the central Gawler Craton of South Australia has potential for Archaean Ni-Cu-PGE sulphide and Archaean-Proterozoic lode-Au mineralising systems. This map is a preliminary interpretation of the Precambrian basement geology based on aeromagnetics, gravity, and diamond drilling. It highlights the extensive distribution of poorly exposed Archaean komatiites and associated rocks (green) that have a strike extent of at least 300 km. The regional pattern of linear komatiitic sequences associated with ovoid granitic plutons and province-wide shear systems, is very similar to the economically important Eastern Goldfields Province in the Yilgarn Craton, Western Australia.
