Abstract: The Røros district is a pyrite-rich polymetallic sulfide orefield in the southeastern part of the Trondheim region, Central Norwegian Caledonides. All of the ore deposits at Røros are hosted within a Cambrian to Silurian succession that was deformed and metamorphosed at lower greenschist to lower amphibolite facies conditions during the Caledonian orogeny. Samples from five individual deposits across the orefield have been analyzed using a combination of reflected light petrographic observation, orientation contrast imaging, and electron backscatter diffraction. Results indicate that, whereas samples from each ore deposit have a variety of different textures, all of them preserve plastic deformation in pyrite grains that occurred at peak metamorphic conditions characterized by the development of internal lattice misorientation within pyrite grains and low-angle (∼2°) dislocation walls. These observations indicate that the principal deformation mechanisms at peak metamorphic conditions were dislocation glide and creep. The preservation of brittle fracturing represents later overprinting events.
