General Features of the Conformable "Pyritic" Orebodies

CIM Bulletin, 1960


The present contribution examines, in some detail, what appear to be the three outstanding features of the field occurrence of the conformable "pyritic" deposits. These are their association with fragmental volcanic rocks (and derivatives ) , their occurrence in sediments of near-shore formation, and their highly variable structural associations.
