Mineralized Intrusion-related Skarn Systems, Volume 26 Mineralized Intrusion-related Skarn Systems, Mineralogical Association of Canada, ISBN X, Abstract In infiltrative skarn systems, especially those associated with sulphide and oxide mineralization, there are pronounced depletions in CO2 and .   The belt comprises intrusion-related Au mineralization and roughly parallels the other main metallogenic belts of the region hosting numerous gold (Au, Au-Bi, Au-Sb, etc.) and W-Sn deposits.

Skarns are relatively high-temperature mineral deposits related to magmatic- hydrothermal activity associated with granitoid plutons in orogenic tectonic settings; skarns generally form where a granitoid pluton has intruded sedimentary strata that include limestone or other carbonate-ri ch rocks. These authors suggested that (1) the fluids responsible for the formation of early and late skarn alteration stages came directly from crystallizing magmas and (2) the metal transport and. In many skarn systems, variation in iron content is the most important parameter and thus, many minerals are described simply by their iron end member, e.g. Hd10 or Ad Large amounts of compositional information can be summarized graphically. The circulation of hot aqueous solution (hydrothermal systems) at, and below, the Earth’s surface is ultimately driven by magmatic heat. This book presents an in-depth review of hydrothermal proceses and systems that form beneath the oceans and in intracontinental rifts, continental margins and .

Mineralized Intrusion-related Skarn Systems. Vol Editors: D.R. Lentz ISBN: A review of the various geochemical systematics involved in the formation of mineralized skarn systems through to regional metallogenic perspectives. This volume would be of interest to research economic geologists, to explorationists and to. The mineral deposition during the propylitic and phyllic alteration stages differs the deposit from many Cu-Au porphyry and skarn deposits, where Cu and Au are precipitated mainly at the potassic alteration stage or in equivalent retrograde skarn (e.g., Atkinson and Einaudi, ; Meinert et al., ; Arif and Baker, ; Sillitoe, ).The latter fits to the model of early contemporaneous. Abstract In infiltrative skarn systems, especially those associated with sulphide and oxide mineralization, there are pronounced depletions in CO 2 and Ca coincident with increasing abundance of Si, Al, Fe, etc. This is regardless of the mass-balance technique used to examine skarns.
