Abstract

Deformation of chalcopyrite (CuFeS2) under low-grade metamorphic
conditions within fault zones in the Mt. Lyell area of western
Tasmania (Australia) has occurred dominantly by a dislocation flow
process. Elongate grain fabrics and well-developed crystallographic
preferred orientations have developed by { 112} (110)/(20l) dislocation
glide. However, the presence of recovered dislocation substructures
indicates that dislocation climb has also been important.
