AbstractDetailed temporal, thermal, and compositional data on aqueous fluid inclusions from a suite of plutonic and diabase samples from the Troodos ophiolite, Cyprus provide the first documentation that generation of high-temperature brines may be common at depth in the oceanic crust. Anastomosing arrays of fluid inclusions in rocks of the upper intrusive sequence record episodic fracturing events. Temperatures and compositions of the low-salinity inclusions are similar to those found in stockwork systems beneath Troodos ore deposits and to those of fluids exciting active submarine hydrothermal vents at mid-ocean ridge spreading centers. The low-temperature fracture networks may represent an extensive deep-seated feeder system which coalesced to form zones of concentrated hydrothermal upflow. -from Authors
