Brief description Subduction zones are the sites for massive sulphide, orogenic vein gold and porphyry deposits. As Australia derived 47% of it merchandise exports from its mineral and energy resources in 2001, ore-deposits constitute an important component of the Australian economy. Understanding the environment of subduction initiation and development as well as the signal that it imparts on the magmatic (ore-forming) arc, will provide improved efficiency for targeting Australia's deep-earth ore-deposits.
