Pyrite (FeSz) is the most abundant sulphide mineral in the crust and a common constituent of ore deposits. The refractory nature of pyrite means it has the potential to preserve information about initial formation, deformation and/or metamorphism of ore deposits. An understanding of primary formation controls and deformation mechanisms in pyrite may therefore assist In determination of the evolutionary history of ore deposits and so aid in their successful exploitation.
