    Mineralogy, geochemistry and origin of the Kalgoorlie gold deposits, Western Australia
    Golding, Lee Yvonne ( 1978)
    Rich gold-telluride lodes (steeply dipping and flatly dipping) and minor gold-quartz stockwork mineralization characterize the Kalgoorlie gold-field. The origin of these gold deposits, the relationship between deposits and then nature of the host rocks are the major problems considered in this thesis. Extensive diamond drilling at the essentially unmineralized southern end of the field provided excellent material for stratigraphic studies and for country rock analysis whilst ore samples were obtained from both mines and drill core.
