Abstract: Our research has applied the clumped O-C isotope technique to the Irish Zn-Pb ore field. Preliminary clumped C-O data will be presented from the Lisheen Zn-Pb orebody (22.3 Mt mined at 11.7% Zn and 2.0% Pb) [4] along with fluid inclusion data . Samples were analysed from all main carbonate generations across the deposit , including: regional dolomite (D 1), dark grey to black pre-ore hydrother mal dolomite (D 2 ; also known as black-matrix breccia), medium-to-coarse-grained ore-stage white ferroan dolomite (D 3 ; white-matrix breccia) , late veins of ferroan dolomite (D4) and white calcite (C4), post-ore crosscutting pink saddle dolomite (D 5), and post-ore white blocky calcite (C 6). We will discuss existing metallogenetic models for the Lisheen deposit and the potential for clumped C-O analysis to constrain fluid flow pathways and mixing processes, and as a tool for mineral exploration .
