Olivier Nadeau


I am interested in the role of fluids and the behaviour of metals in the evolution of magmas, volcanoes and ore deposits. Using petrology, mineralogy and geochemistry, I study ‘extinct but mineralized’ hydrothermal deposits and metasomatized rocks as well as ‘active but barren’ hydrothermal systems.
