Colour graphic illustrating ore deposits and movement of rocks beneath Brunswick Mines.
Massive sulphide mineral deposits discovered near Bathurst were formed in an ancient sea-bottom. Water circulating through the sediment concentrated minerals along volcanic domes and faults. Undersea features called ‘black smokers’ can be formed as superheated water ejects sulfur-bearing minerals from chimney-like vents.
