Abstract The aim of this study is to evaluate the Ni-Co enrichment and the high-tech metals (REE and Sc) geochemistry in the Wingellina Ni-Co oxide-type laterite deposit (Western Australia). The study has been carried out on two mineralized cores (WPDD0012 and WPDD0019 drillcores) originating from two areas of the deposit. The geochemical assessments have been integrated with the analysis of laterite facies and sample mineralogy. In both the studied laterite profiles Ni enrichment was mostly con...

ABSTRACTIn this study, Early Cretaceous skarn deposits and genesis of their host diorite/monzodiorite porphyry in the Xuzhou-Huaibei (Xu-Huai) region, northern Anhui-Jiangsu have been discussed by detailed geochemical work. In-situ zircon U–Pb dating of the diorites related to Fe–Cu–Au deposits shows that they were formed between 131.4 ± 1.5 Ma and 130.8 ± 1.8 Ma. Geochemical data indicate a depletion of high field strength elements (HFSE) in the diorite porphyry with similarity to that of arc-r...

The Lianhuashan deposit has long been regarded as a typical tungsten porphyry deposit, located in the eastern Guangdong Province, in the Southeastern Coastal Metallogenic Belt (SCMB). LA–MC–ICP–MS zircon U–Pb dating of the quartz porphyry yielded a weighted mean 206Pb/238U age of 137.3 ± 2.0 Ma, which is interpreted as the emplacement age of the quartz porphyry. Hydrothermal muscovite yielded a plateau 40Ar/39Ar age of 133.2 ± 0.9 Ma, which is consistent with the zircon U–Pb age, suggesting that...

Abstract Extensional episodes in Precambrian orogens are often difficult to decipher because of subsequent orogenesis and intracontinental reworking. Here, we use geochemical and geochronological constraints of a suite of preserved mafic–ultramafic rocks in the Paleoproterozoic Capricorn Orogen of Western Australia to reveal ophiolites, continental ribbons and aborted rifts. The Capricorn Orogen separates the Archean Yilgarn and Pilbara cratons and includes mafic–ultramafic rocks of the fault-bo...

Abstract In this contribution we examine the compositions of solid solutions and intermetallics of the system Cu-Ag-Au-Hg and the physicochemical conditions of their formation in rodingites from the Zolotaya Gora gold deposit (Southern Urals, Russia). Thermodynamic calculations, modeling the formation of mineral assemblages of rodingite and Cu-Ag-Au-Hg mineralization, were carried out using a “Selektor-C” software package. Two probable models for the genesis of Au-Ag-Cu-Hg solid solutions and Au...

Several Au, Sb, Sb–Au, Pb–Zn, and Sb–Pb–Zn–Ag deposits are present throughout the North Himalaya in southern Tibet, China. The largest Sb–Pb–Zn–Ag deposit is Zhaxikang (18 Mt at 0.6 wt% Sb, 2.0 wt% Pb, 3.5 wt% Zn, and 78 g/t Ag). Zhaxikang veins are hosted within N–S trending faults, which crosscut the Early–Middle Jurassic Ridang Formation consisting of shale interbedded with sandstone and limestone deposited on a passive continental margin. Ore paragenesis indicates that Zhaxikang mineralizati...

Halogens (and associated volatiles) in hydrothermal solutions are key elements responsible for the genesis of mineral systems. Chlorine is probably the most common halogen, responsible for complexing metals and transporting them in hydrothermal solutions. The F halogen can be extremely powerful for the transport of metals in some specific mineral systems (e.g., IOCG, carbonatites), in addition to forming their own mineral species, such as fluorites. In this chapter halogen complexes and ligands ...
