structures of ore mineral deposits

Geological ore deposits The Australian Museum

Geological ore deposits are of many different types and occur in all geological environments. (on average, 350 m). They are ancient volcanic structures, most commonly collapsed craters and calderas. The placer deposits usually form from primary deposits in which the ore mineral is widely disseminated and uneconomic. Concentration occurs

Mineral Ore Deposits: Meaning, Origin and Types Geology

These associated minerals are called gangue minerals and are worthless. Quartz (SiO 2) is a common gangue mineral associated with many metallic ore minerals. Origin of Ore Deposits: Mineral deposits may occur independently forming layers and bodies of different shapes extending for many kilometers in areal extent and upto many meters in depth.

Structures of the Zhazixi Sb–W deposit, South China

The Xuefeng uplift belt is an orogenic belt with numerous antimoniferous deposits between the Yangtze and Cathaysia blocks in South China. The Xuefeng uplift belt trends to the northeast in its southwestern part and reorients to the east in its northeastern part (Fig. 1a) (HBGMR, 1988).Evidences regarding magmatism, structures, metamorphic deformation and paleomagnetism suggest that the

Calcite is the primary mineral in metamorphic marble. It also occurs as a vein mineral in deposits from hot springs, and it occurs in caverns as stalactites and stalagmites. Calcite is the primary ore of calcium. Calcite is indispensable in the construction industry, forming the base of cement. Many important chemicals are created from calcite.
