The aim of the Hellyer Stringer Zone Project is to
investigate the geology and geochemistry of the footwall
stringer zone and associated alteration envelope, with
the purpose of defining the physical and chemical
processes involved in the formation of this zone, and
their relation to the genesis of the overlying massive
sulphide body. This report summarises the information
obtained from January to June, 1989 and reports the
results of the field work and analytical investigations
concentrating on the distribution and mineralogical and
geochemical characteristics of the alteration zone, as
well as sulphur isotopic analyses of sulphide minerals
within the stringer zone and stringer envelope zone. Dr.
J. Bruce Gernmell spent 5 weeks at the Hellyer mine
during the second quarter of the project and continued
to log core of stringer zone, map underground
development through the stringer zone, and collected
samples for alteration and sulphur isotope studies.
