The newly discovered Shimensi deposit is a super-large tungsten-copper (W–Cu) deposit with a metal reserve of 742.55 thousand tonnes (kt) W and 403.6 kt Cu. The orebodies are hosted in Mesozoic granites, which intruded the poorly documented Shimensi granodiorite belonging to the Jiuling batholith, the largest intrusion (outcrop > 2500 km2) in South China. Our new SHRIMP (Sensitive High Resolution Ion MicroProbe) zircon dating revealed that the granodiorite at Shimensi (ca. 830–827 Ma) was formed...

Abstract The Shimensi deposit is a newly discovered, super-large tungsten (W) polymetallic deposit in northwestern Jiangxi Province, South China. In this paper, we reported new zircon U–Pb ages for the ore-bearing porphyritic biotite granite (151.3 ± 2.8 Ma) and fine-grained granite (150.1 ± 1.2 Ma and 150.7 ± 2.4 Ma), which represent the oldest Mesozoic granitic magmatism reported at Shimensi. Our ore-bearing granite porphyry ages (142.7 ± 2.3 Ma and 143.3 ± 1.5 Ma) have better constrained the ...

The Shimensi deposit (Northern Jiangxi, South China) is a recently discovered super-large tungsten deposit. Muscovite 40Ar/39Ar dating yielded a plateau age of 145.7 ± 0.9 Ma, with normal and inverse isochronal ages being 145.4 ± 1.4 Ma and 145.3 ± 1.4 Ma, respectively. The muscovite 40Ar/39Ar age, which can represent the mineralization age, coincides well with the published zircon U–Pb ages (143–148 Ma) of the ore-hosting granites, which indicates that the tungsten mineralization was syn-magmat...
