Major Styles of Mineralization and Hydrothermal Alteration

and the character of the hydrothermal alteration zones. Thus, using these studies as a model, we chose a number of sub-basins representative of the major styles and ages of mineral-ization in the study area for integrated geologic and aqueous geochemical studies. Details of the ore

Mineralization an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Disseminated ore with Ni/Cu ratio between 1 and 1.5 within or surrounding the massive grade brecciated zones. The disseminated ore is reasonably continuous mineralization characterized by sulfides interstitial to silicates and composed mainly of pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite, and pentlandite. 3.

Boiling Zones and Precious Metal Mineralisation in

Ore bodies are localized in zones of strong paleo-permeability commonly controlled by subvertical extensional structures where very strong fluxes of boiling fluid develop episodically. The mineralogical products of boiling, comprising ore-grade mineralisation, distinct vein textures, and zoned hydrothermal alteration, have been used

Detachment-fault-related Mineralization

These altered zones sometimes contain base-metal sulfides and barite. There is massive potassium feldspar replacement of upper-plate rocks. This alteration appears to generally precede ore formation and is not always spatially associated with mineralization.

Jul 01, 2020 However, there are strong small-scale lateral variations in wall rock alteration with distance from the ore zones. Alteration haloes may extend laterally from gold mineralization only for a few centimeters or as much as 2 km. In general, there is a positive correlation between the size of the deposit and the lateral extent of alteration.

Controls of Ore Localization

Controls of Ore Localization . Structural Controls of Ore Localization. Structural controls on mineralization are evident in almost every type of ore deposit.Faults or other permeable features, either primary or superimposed, tap a supply of mineral-bearing fluid and allow it to migrate into a "trap" where it cools and precipitates the mineral content or, more commonly, where it has sufficient

The reactor zones at Oklo (Okélobondo and Bangombé) are the only places on Earth where nuclear decay reactions have been identified as occurring in natural uranium ore deposits (Blanc, 1996). The reactors date from 1.97–1.95 billion years ago and the criticality lasted from 0.5 to 1 million years, with temperatures ranging from 160 °C to

zones produce predictable assemblages. Relations among Alteration, Gangue, and Ore. Ore is traditionally defined as a valuable mineral or chemical commodity that can be extracted at a profit. In VMS deposits, ore generally consists of sulfide or sulfosalt minerals that contain Cu, Pb, Zn, Ag, and (or) Au. Gangue is defined

As is described following, this country rock alteration is distinctive and changes as you approach mineralization. volatile-enriched magmas emplaced in highly permeable rock are ore-forming processes that can be

Besides the main ore zones, low-grade disseminated mineralisation occurs in the "kaolin ore body". This mineralisation trends sub-parallel to the zone of supergene-enriched vein mineralisation, and has a shallow plunge to the southeast, closely corresponding in the vertical plane with the supergene-enrichment zone.

Mineralisation forms tongue-shaped ore zones along the permeable sandstone layers adjacent to the fault. Often there are a number of mineralised zones 'stacked' vertically on top of each other within sandstone units adjacent to the fault zone. Quartz-pebble conglomerate deposits Quartz

Apr 24, 2015 Surrounding the chimney is an exhalative length of sulphuric material that forms on the floor. The secret of the high grade of the ore lies in rapid cooling of the hydrothermal fluid when it reaches the full seafloor. As in porphyry deposits, the main focus of trend in deposits is the drop in temperature rather than changes in EH or pH.

The Touquoy Zone deposit: an example of “unusual” orogenic

Abstract: The Touquoy Zone deposit is host to disseminated gold mineralisation in metasiltstones of lower Palaeozoic age. From the close correlation between ore grades and the intersection of favourable stratigraphy and bounding faults, it is apparent that mineralisation is controlled by both structural and lithological influences.

Jul 03, 2016 Recently, I’ve frequently read and heard phrases like ‘Vectors to Mineralisation’, ‘Geochemical Vectors’, or ‘Vectoring’ used when referring to a wide zone of alteration around an existing ore body. By studying these ‘vectors to mineralisation’ from known deposits, it is hoped to identify the location of an as yet undiscovered

Oct 10, 2013 Descriptions of an ore mineral deposit or project area often refer to geologic structures or features that are important to the deposit. Indeed, we have often written about structurally controlled mineralization in our mining company press release reviews. “hinge zone drilling encounters high grade gold mineralization”

Contrasting Styles of High-Grade Iron Mineralisation at

This type of mineralisation produces narrow (low-tonnage), high-grade magnetite-rich ore zones with high levels of contaminants (eg SiO2, Al2O3) due to the difficulty in mining these zones.3. Specular haematite quartz-bearing shear and fault zones cut residual orebodies and magnetite bearing structures.

The major role played by pre-existing structures in the formation of vein-style mineral deposits is demonstrated with several examples. The control of a pre-existing decollement level on the formation of a crustal extension-related (collapse) gold deposit is first illustrated in the Quadrilátero Ferrífero from Brazil. Shear zone and decollement structures were also examined and shown to

If the ore-forming fluid was formed in a similar manner, high-grade feeder zones are not to be expected beneath these deposits. Coipa (Oviedo et al, 1991). Alternatively, magma chemistry may be invoked as the basic control of Ag/Au ratio, as is assuredly the case at
