Abstract

The in situ stress field has been measured, using two separate stress tensor measurement techniques, at six mine sites located in the Kundana mining region along a 10 km strike of the Zuleika Shear Zone. The Zuleika Shear Zone is an extensive regional shear in the Archean Yilgarn Craton of Western Australia. The stresses measured by the two techniques are compared and then considered in the context of a larger database of stress measurement results taken from within the Yilgarn Craton. The results allow comparison between stresses accommodated by the craton en masse and by its extensive crustal scale faults and shears.
