On the basis of geochemical whole-rock and mineralogical point analyses, the concentrations of V and Co were determined in magnetite-ilmenite oxide ores, associated with sulphides, at the Krzemianka and Udryn deposits in the Mesoproterozoic Suwałki Anorthosite Massif (SAM) in NE Poland. EPMA analyses showed that the main carrier of vanadium was mag...

Field, petrological and mineral chemistry for meta-volcanic rocks from the Aravalli sequence (Aravalli Craton, India) are presented. Field evidence such as volcanic flows and suspect pillow lava structures, dominant Fe-tholeiite lava flows intercalated with quartzites and argillaceous sediments, indicate rift tectonic environment. Primary mineralog...

The Mesoproterozoic Suwałki Anorthosite Massif (SAM), located in NE Poland is completely covered by ca. 1000 m thick Phanerozoic sequences. It was not fully recognized by deep boreholes that have been mainly focused on anomaly area for Fe-Ti-V deposit prospects. Thus, an understanding of 3D structure of the SAM was the crucial point in recent study...

This Tajno alkaline massif (together with the nearby Ełk and Pisz intrusions) occurs beneath a thick Mesozoic- Cenozoic sedimentary cover. It has first been recognized by geophysical (magnetic and gravity) investigations, then directly by deep drilling (12 boreholes down to 1800 m). The main rock types identified as clinopyroxenites, syenites, carb...

Ab s t r a c t. The condition of stone building objects is determined by many physicochemical factors and destructive processes. All stone materials are subject to natural aging, losing many of their primordial properties.
