As I will discuss in this paper, the metaphor of brecciation is also useful to capture spaces that are in the process of completion.
The targets exhibit multiple episodes of silicification, brecciation, alteration and gold-silver values and ratios typical of the upper levels of gold-silver mineralised systems in the district.
