Summary:

Vivien is a typical orogenic structurally controlled Archaean gold lode system.

Mineralisation occurs within a high-grade quartz vein, hosted by a dolerite-gabbro unit. The veins trend 028° magnetic and dips steeply (70°) to the SE. The quartz vein/lode averages 2.7m width and has significant strike and dip continuity (˜500m). The high-grade zones are generally wider and sulphide rich, with pyrrhotite and arsenopyrite being the dominant sulphide species. Mineralisation is related to a secondary phase of quartz veining with associated sulphide mineralisation.
