Pages Relation of Permian Base Metal Occurrences to the Variscan Paleogeothermal Field of the Fore-Sudetic Monocline (Southwestern Poland).   Since then, 10 individual VMS occurrences have been found and drill-tested. At seven of them, sulphide zones were intersected. The McFauld’s 3 deposit was the second discovery on the property. The McFauld’s VMS occurrences are primarily stringer copper type deposits associated with intense talc-chlorite alteration. Metallic mineral deposits may contain base metals such as copper, lead, zinc, and iron; precious metals such as gold and silver; or rare metals such as indium. Brunswick Mines in northeast New Brunswick produced lead, zinc, and copper, plus significant amounts of gold, silver, cadmium, bismuth, and antimony for export worldwide.

The property is situated approximately 9 km southwest of the Delta Ni-Cu-Pd-Pt deposit owned by Falconbridge Ltd. (and others), and 10 km west of Canadian Royalties Inc.’s Crocodile Tears property. The West Shoot Out property is situated along the ultramafics of the Raglan South Trend, which hosts several Ni-Cu-PGE occurrences further to the. The Kootenay Arc (KA) hosts a large number of carbonate-hosted base metal (Zn-Pb) deposits. These deposits occur mainly within the dolomitized limestone of the Lower Cambrian Badshot Formation (or its equivalent the Reeves Member of the Laib Formation), and the Upper Cambrian to Lower Ordovician Nelway Formation. They range in size from million tonnes with average grades of % Zn, %.   More than 25 emerald and rare metal (Be, Nb, and Ta) deposits and occurrences (associated with desilicified pegmatites or greisens and albite-microcline pegmatites, respectively) have been identified in the exocontact zone, which is 25 km long and to km long.   Canada accounts for approximately 40% to 50% of the world’s known REE reserves. Moreno noted that $3 billion has already been invested in .

Base-metal vanadate deposits is a term commonly applied to occurrences of lead-, zinc-, and copper-vanadate minerals in the oxidized parts of base-metal deposits. These vanadate deposits have yielded a moderate amount of vanadium, they have attracted considerable mineralogic attention, and they present some interesting and puzzling. The Deposit Modeling Program was founded by UNESCO-IUGS with the major aim to disseminate knowledge from scientists in more developed countries to their counterparts from less developed ones. A fringe benefit of this effort was the compilation of information on existing models and promotion of topical workshops in developing countries. This book is the result of one such workshop that took. 6 Fig. 3b. Distribution of the epithermal deposits and prospects in the Biga Peninsula with emphasis on host-rock lithology (Yigit, ).

The Abra lead-silver-copper-gold occurrence is located within the Palaeo- to Mesoproterozoic Bangemall or Edmund basin of the Capricorn Orogen, hosted by sedimentary rocks, some km NNE of Perth in Western Australia. It occurs within a 60 x 1 to 9 km wide belt of base metal occurrences and showings known as the Jillawarra Belt.
