Friday Photo (56): Photos from Industry – Copper Deposits in Fault Zones

The deposits on the surface of this sandstone are a distinctive shade of green – indicative of copper. Copper is mobilised and concentrated along fault zones.

If you have any photos from time spent working in industry, that do not breach company copyright regulations, then please get in touch and we will publish them on our blog!
