Brine migration in Chadian-Brigantian carbonate strata of southeastern Ireland
"The Irish base metal district is host to several economic and sub-economic Zn-Pb deposits including those of the Rathdowney Trend...if the genesis of these deposits is to be fully understood, the fluid flow history of the entire region must be characterized so that these previous studies may be placed into a framework that can help explain the entire system...The purpose of this study is to analyze regionally distributed epigenetic open-space-filling cements in order to: (1) identify and characterize fluid types in Supra-Waulsortian strata proximal to the Leinster Massif, (2) determine if these fluids contributed to ore-forming fluids in the Rathdowney Trend, and (3) investigate if ore-forming fluids were in contact with Supra-Waulsortian strata"--Introduction, leaves 1-2.
