Most coarse rocks (breccias) formed by deformation along faults are highly permeable to crustal fluids. However, the permeability in many breccias is quickly sealed by mineral cements. On other faults, highly permeable open fissures along faults are filled by sedimentation. More accurate characterisation of the wide range of fault breccias is crucial to understanding their permeability history.
