Manning (2012) has challenged our suggestion that dissolution by hydrofl uoric acid (HF) contributed to the formation of the Olympic Dam breccia complex (McPhie et al., 2011b). Manning has summarized the outcome of considerable experimental and other research on HF-granite interactions under magmatic and near-magmatic temperature and pressure conditions. Under these conditions, a reaction takes place, rather than dissolution, and produces a crystalline quartz-topaz assemblage. However, these conditions are not relevant to our proposal that HF played a role in the formation of the Olympic Dam breccia complex.
