Abstract
Abstract The Jiepailing deposit, located in southern Hunan Province, China, is a giant Sn–Be–F deposit in the Nanling W–Sn province. The Sn–Be–F mineralization is spatially associated with the Jiepailing granite porphyry. LA-MC-ICP-MS zircon U–Pb dating of the Jiepailing granite porphyry yielded a weighted mean 206 Pb/ 238 U age of 90.5 ± 0.9 Ma (MSWD = 0.32), which is interpreted as the emplacement age of the granite porphyry. Hydrothermal muscovite yields a plateau 40 Ar/ 39 Ar age of 92.1 ± 0.7 Ma (MSWD = 0.9), which is well consistent with the zircon U–Pb age of the Jiepailing granite porphyry responsible for the Sn–Be–F mineralization, indicating a temporal link between the emplacement of the Jiepailing granite porphyry and the Sn–Be–F mineralization. Our new high precise geochronological data suggest that the Jiepailing giant Sn–Be–F deposit and related granite formed during the early Late Cretaceous (92–90 Ma), which provided convincing evidence for a previously unrecognized metallogenic event related to Late Cretaceous granitic magmatism in Nanling region. The occurrence of the Late Cretaceous Sn metallogenic event identified in southern Hunan Province further highlights the importance of systematic metallogenic studies of the Nanling W–Sn province. Integrated with high precise geochronological data obtained previously, it is suggested that the Nanling region mainly experienced three tectonomagmatic activities and lithospheric thinning events during Mesozoic, which are responsible for three Sn–W metallogenic events to form the world-class Nanling W–Sn metallogenic province.

More than 50 % of the world's total reserves of tungsten are in China and most tungsten deposits are located in the Nanling range in southeast China. This study explores the potential genetic relationship between tungsten–tin (W–Sn) mineralization and shallower Ag–Pb–Zn deposits in the Nanling range based on data from the Wutong deposit, Guangxi Province. The lead, oxygen, carbon, sulfur, and strontium isotopic compositions of minerals at Wutong indicate that a single crustal-derived fluid was r...

The ore deposits of the Mesozoic age in South China can be divided into three groups, each with different metal associations and spatial distributions and each related to major magmatic events. The first event occurred in the Late Triassic (230–210 Ma), the second in the Mid–Late Jurassic (170–150 Ma), and the third in the Early–Mid Cretaceous (120–80 Ma). The Late Triassic magmatic event and associated mineralization is characterized by peraluminous granite-related W–Sn–Nb–Ta mineral deposits. ...

Abstract The Xihuashan tungsten deposit in the central Nanling region, South China, is an important vein-type ore deposit hosted in Cambrian strata and Mesozoic granitic intrusions. Wolframite and molybdenite are the principal ore minerals. The gangue minerals are mainly quartz and muscovite. Wolframite and molybdenite are products of the first stage hydrothermal activity, whereas muscovite formed dominantly at the second stage. Molybdenite Re–Os and muscovite 40 Ar/ 39 Ar dating have been carri...

More than 90% of the tungsten resources of China are in the Nanling region of South China, and the Yaogangxian vein deposit is the largest tungsten deposit in this region. The tungsten deposits have ages of 150–160 Ma, and are spatially, temporally and genetically related to granites which were previously believed to be produced by crustal anatexis. This paper provides He and Ar isotope data of fluid inclusions in pyrite and arsenopyrite from the Yaogangxian W veins. 3He/4He ratios range from 0....

Abstract The Wulong deposit is the largest quartz vein-type gold deposit in the eastern Liaoning Province of China. The gold ore bodies are hosted by Mesozoic biotite-granites. The mineralization occurs as veins with lenticular shapes. Laser-ablation-ICP–MS zircon U–Pb dating was used to date the biotite-granite, granite porphyry, and fine-grained diorites at the Wulong deposit, yielding ages of 155.4 ± 0.9 Ma, 154.2 ± 1.2 Ma, and 123.1 ± 0.9 Ma, respectively. A sericite sample from the gold ore...

Abstract South China hosts many Nb–Ta deposits that show evidence for episodic mineralization, which were generated during the emplacement of composite granites. To constrain the spatio-temporal distribution of Nb–Ta mineralisation in the region and to identify future targets for mineral exploration, we used in situ laser ablation-inductively coupled plasma-mass spectroscopy to date 23 columbite-tantalite group mineral (CGM) samples from 14 Nb–Ta deposits. Our CGM U–Pb data, supplemented by prev...

Abstract The Xihuashan tungsten ore deposit in the central Nanling region, South China is a vein-type hydrothermal deposit associated with the Late Jurassic granitoids that were previously thought to be the products of crustal anatexis alone. In this study, we use helium (He) and argon (Ar) isotopes of fluid inclusions entrapped in pyrite and arsenopyrite to determine the origin of the ore-forming fluids. The 3 He/ 4 He ratios of the crushed fluid inclusions vary from 0.15 to 1.16 Ra, with a mea...

Abstract The Xianghualing Sn–Pb–Zn deposit is situated near the center of the world-class Nanling W–Sn ore belt, associated with the highly evolved Laiziling granite of Jurassic age. Previous studies focused mainly on geochemical and geochronological features of the mineralization-related granite, whereas research on the source, evolution and geochronology of the ore-forming fluids has been limited. We carried out precise U–Pb dating, trace element, and Hf isotopic analyses on magmatic and hydro...

Abstract The Passa Tres granite is a NNE-SSW elongated shape intrusion located in the Parana State (southern Brazil). This intrusion was emplaced within metapelites of the Mesoproterozoic Votuverava Group, which are part of the N040°E trending Lancinha Shear Zone. Gold mineralisation within the Passa Tres granite is held by meter-scale quartz veins forming orebodies with variable massive, banded, sheared and/or brecciated internal textures. Structural data indicate the existence of two orthogona...

ABSTRACTThe Nanling range (Nanling) is characterized by intense and widespread Mesozoic magmatism related large-scale W–Sn mineralization. A summary of geochemistry, geochronology, and petrogenesis for the W–Sn-bearing granites has been carried out in this study. A series of rock- and ore-forming ages in Nanling indicate that the W–Sn mineralization is closely related to the Early Yanshanian granitic magmatism both in temporal and spatial dimensions (165–150 Ma). Geochemical features show that b...
