The Classification of Metalliferous Provinces and Deposits

CIM Bulletin, 1957


Many metalliferous provinces are co-extensive with particular groups of sedimentary, volcanic, or basic plutonic rocks. Deposits may be truly syngenetic (Rand, Rhodesia-Katanga, Mansfield, Blind River, White Pine); re. concentrated by circulating waters (Colorado Plateau, Red Bed Coper or re-concentrated thermally during metamorphism and granitization (most uranium and lead-zinc provinces and some copper and gold provinces) .
