Unlike my other web-pages, this page provides access to published and unpublished research I was involved with in the central part of the Eastern Goldfields, aimed at understanding its tectonic and structural evolution and controls on gold mineralization. Here you can download our published papers as well as the Gold Module of the AMIRA Giant Ore Deposit GODS project (88 Mb PDF file) or some of its chapters.
