Abstract

Drilling during International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) Expedition 370 at Site C0023 encountered instances of hydrothermal mineralization from 775 to 1121 meters below seafloor. Fluid inclusion homogenization temperatures measured on barite veins within this interval indicate precipitation from fluids with temperatures up to 220 °C, and salinities ten times higher than interstitial water (16-25 c.f. 2.8-3.6 wt % NaCl). Patches of stratabound mineralization (rhodochrosite, calcite, barite and anhydrite) are largely confined to the vicinity of veins and have vertical thicknesses and extents that can be explained by precipitation within the thermal aureoles of veins. Thermal maturities measured on petroleum biomarkers in underthrust sediments record a rise from pre-oil window to early oil window thermal maturities. Basin models show that increases in thermal maturity can be explained by burial metamorphism, and kinetic-based calculations suggest that hot fluids would only have had a minimal effect on hydrocarbon generation. However, the movement of hot fluids still has geochemical implications and creates a complex thermal history where both short-duration, localized heating within fracture zones at hot temperatures (~ 200 °C for less than 1 yr) and heating during burial over long durations (80-110 °C for 0.5 to 2 Myrs) need to be considered.
