GEOCHEMISTRY OF STRATIFORM SULPHIDE DEPOSITS OF THE EASTERN SEGMENT OF THE GREATER CAUCASUS

(N.A. Novruzov)




Abstract


The results of multi-year geochemical investigations are considered in the monograph by the author of the sulphide deposits of the South slope of the Greater Caucasus. The regularities of distribution of rare and precious metals and other elements-impurites in ores, minerals, enclosing rocks of sulphide-bearing province’s deposits of region have been determined on the basis of the interpretation of the vast number of analytical material. The revealed mineralogical-geochemical zonality, values indices of indicator ratios, relationship between the components and other geochemical indices have been used during determination of the physical-chemical conditions of ores formation, ore matter source and impurity elements behavior in complex process of the mineral formation, as geochemical search indicators of sulp¬hide deposits in Lower-Middle Jurassic sandy-clay deposits of the region.

The book is intended for geochemists, mineralogists, geologists and specialists studied the ore deposits.
