Most sediment-hosted stratiform lead-zinc deposits contain abundant iron sulfide, in contrast to the copper deposits which are characterized by low sulfide iron contents. Barite is abundant and massive in several of the lead-zinc deposits but is sparse in stratiform copper deposits.

Considering the large task of describing the broad subject matter, we excluded certain types of sediment-hosted Pb-Zn deposits. We will not discuss the fracture-controlled deposits in which fluorite is dominant and barite typically abundant (e.g., Central Kentucky, Hansonburg, New Mexico, or the English Pennines) or the fluorite-rich deposits such as those in southern Illinois, considered a.

By analogy with the volcanic-associated massive sulfide (VMS) deposits discussed earlier (Ch. 10), the descriptive term sediment-hosted massive sulfide (SMS) deposits is preferred, because it emphasizes the lithologic association of the deposits and excludes any genetic by: 2.

This book highlights the recent advances made in the understanding of the temporal and tectono-stratigraphic distribution of sediment-hosted Pb-Zn sulphide ores and processes governing their genesis. Nine of the 10 largest sediment-hosted Pb-Zn deposits are SEDEX. Of the deposits that contain at least million metric tons (Mt), there are 35 SEDEX (excluding Broken Hill-type) deposits.

Sediment-hosted Pb-Zn deposits contain the world's greatest lead and zinc resources and dominate world production of these metals. They are a chverse group of ore deposits hosted by a wide variety of carbonate and siliciclastic roch that have no obviolls genetic association with igneous activity.

A nmge of ore-fortl1ing processes in a vmiety of geologic and tectonic environments created these Cited by: The publication examines strata-bound tin deposits, geology of the Pine Point lead-zinc district, and genesis of the Rammelsberg ore deposit near Goslar/Upper Harz in the Federal Republic of Germany.

The selection is a valuable reference for researchers wanting to explore ore deposits. Sedimentary-Exhalative (SEDEX) Type Deposits “Syngenetic” stratiform, bedded Zn-Pb deposits hosted by fine-grained clastic sedimentary rocks. These three types may be considered as a spectrum of base-metal ore deposits which form in sedimentary rocks at some time during the evolution of a sedimentary basin.

The Cannington deposit, situated at the southern end of the Mt. Isa basin, is a strata-bound, rather than stratiform, sedimentary rock-hosted Ag-Pb-Zn deposit, which shows sig- nificant differences from the other five deposits, and has been termed a Broken Hill-type deposit (Bodon, ; Walters and Bailey, ; Walters et al., ).

Carbonate-hosted lead-zinc ore deposits are important and highly valuable concentrations of lead and zinc sulfide ores hosted within carbonate (limestone, marl, dolomite) formations and which share a common genetic origin. These ore bodies range from million tonnes of contained ore, to 20 million tonnes or more, and have a grade of between 4% combined lead and zinc to over 14% combined.

typically fine-grained and stratiform down to the hand-specimen scale. They are also commonly referred to as "sediment-hosted stratiform deposits" or "sedimentary-exhalative lead-zinc", or "sedex" deposits because they are considered to mainly have formed through exhalation of basinal brines atCited by: 6.

Pb-Zn-Ag stratiform deposits occur in ancient continental rift sediments (Sawkins, ). These deposits, which are not associated with igneous rocks, occur in marine carbonates and are probably deposited from brines, which migrate to the edge of rift basins.

Particular attention has been paid to the sediment-hosted, stratiform lead-zinc and volcanic-hosted massive sulphide deposits, but the review also includes discussions of Archaean ocean composition, orogenic lode gold deposits, Proterozoic Broken Hill-type and Cu and Au ores, and banded iron formations and their related iron ores.

Details Sediment-hosted stratiform lead-zinc deposits PDF

Stratiform ore deposits associated with calc-alkaline and tholeiitic volcanism form as chemically precipitated sediments and, like other sediments, display facies variations. An attempt to characterise these vertical and lateral facies variations and to relate them to distance in time and space from the volcanic centre is presented here.
