In eastern Australia, along a 2400km belt from Queensland to New South Wales, 5: Textures and Structures of Ore and Gangue Minerals. Fluid Inclusions. 1 Introduction The study of textures can tell us much about the genesis and subsequent history of orebodies. The textures of orebodies vary according to whether their constituent minerals were formed by deposition in an open space from a silicate or aqueous solution, or by replacement of pre-existing rock or ore minerals. Subsequent metamorphism may drastically alter primary textures.

The total labour force is about 900. When it is remembered that one mine job creates about three indirect jobs in the local community in service and construction industries, the impact clearly is considerable. Impacts of this and even much smaller size have led to conflicts over land use and opposition to the exploitation of mineral deposits by environmentalists, particularly in the more populous of the developed countries. The resolution of such conflicts may involve the payment of compensation and the eventual cost of rehabilitating mined out areas, or the abandonment of projects; 'whilst political risk has been cited as a barrier to investment in some countries, environmental risk is as much of a barrier, if not greater in others' (Select Committee of the British Parliament in 1982).

2). (b) Tubular orebodies. These bodies are relatively short in two dimensions but extensive in the third. When vertical or subvertical they are called pipes or chimneys, when horizontal or subhorizontal, mantas.
