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 0.5 million tonnes of contained ore, to 20 million tonnes or more, and have a grade of between 4% combined lead …

Zinc is commonly found in mineral deposits along with other base metals, such as copper and lead. Zinc deposits are broadly classified on the basis of how they are formed. Zinc is produced mainly from three types of deposits: sedimentary exhalative (Sedex), Mississippi Valley type (MVT), and volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS).


Economic Geology 101 is a course for beginners in exploration geology, people requiring a basic understanding of ore deposits, students, and anyone who is inquisitive about mineral deposits and how these form. The course provides an overview of the three major rock types (igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks), and introduces the geologic processes …

Zinc. Zinc is a bluish-white, lustrous metal with the chemical symbol Zn. Its main ore mineral is sphalerite (ZnS). Some of its uses are for galvanizing (plating thin layers of zinc onto iron or steel to protect from corrosion), production of brass (combination of zinc and copper), and coloring in rubber and paint. Year of first production in ...

A major constraint on the formation of epigenetic hydrothermal lead-zinc deposits is the low solubility of lead and zinc sulphide in aqueous solutions (Fig. 2). Thus, only small quantities of lead and zinc can be transported in a reduced sulphide solution, and unrealistically large volumes of such a fluid are required to form economic lead-zinc ...


Josiah Edward Spurr suggested the need for a journal sometime in November or December 1904. After informal discussions, nine of the founders met in the office of Waldemar Lindgren in the headquarters of the U.S. Geological Survey in Washington, D.C., on May 16, 1905, and founded the Economic Geology Publishing Company.

greater riches. The economic life of the district was extended indefinitely when the commercial production of metallic zinc began in 1860. With its reserves greatly exceeding those of lead, zinc production from the district peaked during World War I.

Lead-zinc-silver veins in the Chilete mining district in the Department of Cajamarca in northern Peru have been worked sporadically since the 17th century, but the greatest activity dates only from 1951. The ore deposits are in a thick section of andesitic volcanic rocks that overlie with marked unconformity a sequence of Cretaceous limestone, shale, and quartz-ite.


Approximately 99 percent of past production and remaining identified resources of gold, silver, copper, lead, and zinc in the United States are accounted for by deposits that originally contained at least 2 metric tonnes (t) gold, 85 t silver, 50,000 t copper, 30,000 t lead, or 50,000 t zinc. The U.S. Geological Survey, beginning with the 1996 National Mineral Resource Assessment, is ...


Copper, lead, zinc, and silver have been explored for and mined in the Trans-Pecos region of west Texas for centuries, with production waning to almost non-existent today. There are still prospects and deposits, that could be economical in as more favorable market, and with emerging technologies that include critical ore minerals.
