PRIMARY EXPRESSIONS OF ORE DEPOSITS A well known aspect of ore deposit expression is the association of particular ore types with particular host rock assemblages, i.e., the ore-host rock association (e.g., Stanton, 1972). This association broadly reflects the geological environment and processes that have formed the ore.

Classification of Mineral Deposits Geology for Investors

Jul 29, 2013  Most mineral deposits are formed by more than one process, so attaching a single label to them is difficult. Hence, there is a tendency to talk about Stillwater Complex type or Carlin-type gold deposits, which rather defeats the purpose of finding a general from the specific. There are two main approaches to mineral deposit classification.

Magmatic ore deposits (Chapter 2) - Ore Deposit Geology

Magmatic ore deposits, also known as orthomagmatic ore deposits, are deposits within igneous rocks or along their contacts in which ore minerals crystallised from a melt or were transported in a melt. Ore deposits that form in and around igneous rock units as a result of mineral precipitation from aqueous solutions or hydrothermal fluids are hydrothermal ore deposits.

Ore genesis, the process by which a deposit of ore is created, is estimated to take millions of years. There are three major types of ore genesis: internal processes, hydrothermal processes, and surficial processes. Ore can accumulate through geologic activity, such as when volcanoes bring ore from deep in the planet to the surface. This is ...
