Article
Germanium (Ge) is a critical raw material used in high-technology industry (i.e., optical industry) applications, and it is predominantly concentrated in coals and Zn-rich deposits. Previous studies on Zn-rich deposits have documented a correlation between Ge enrichment and the Cu, Ag, and/or Pb-Mn contents in the sphalerite crystal lattice. In thi...

There are many dispersed element-rich Pb-Zn deposits hosted by Paleozoic carbonate rocks in the Middle-Upper Yangtze Block, China. The origin and nature of the ore-forming fluids that formed them are still much debated (syngenetic vs. epigenetic). The Banbianjie Ge-Zn deposit is located in the southeastern margin of the Yangtze Block, SW China. It...
Article
The Liaodong Peninsula in northeast China hosts visible and invisible Au-dominated mineralization. Compared with visible Au, age and mechanisms of invisible Au-dominated mineralization are still unclear. The Linjiasandaogou deposit in the Liaodong Peninsula comprises disseminated and veinlet ores hosted in Paleoproterozoic schist and Triassic grani...
Article
The Buziwannan gold-polymetallic deposit is located in Northwest China's West Kunlun Orogen Belt (WKOB). There are two metallogenic stages that have been identified: skarn and hydrothermal. In this research study, in situ mineral geochemistry and sulfur–lead isotopes are used to precisely constrain the genesis and ore-forming process. Pyrite is the...

Pb–Zn deposits supply a significant proportion of critical metals, such as In, Ga, Ge, and Co. Due to the growing demand for critical metals, it is urgent to clarify the different types of Pb–Zn deposits to improve exploration. The trace element concentrations of sphalerite can be used to classify the types of Pb–Zn deposits. However, it is difficu...
Article
The super large bauxite deposit known as the Danping deposit is hosted in the Dazhuyuan formation, Lower Permian, and is located in northern Guizhou (Southwest China). The geochemical signatures of five generations of pyrite from Danping have been identified, and their genesis has been constrained by analyzing their geochemical signatures. Oolitic...
Article
Full-text available
Carbonate-hosted Pb–Zn deposits frequently contain significant amounts of critical metals such as germanium in sphalerite. However, the textural and chemical controls leading to Ge enrichment remain poorly constrained. Based on textural observations and laser-ablation (multi-collector) inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry analysis, we inves...

As geosciences enter the era of big data, machine learning (ML) that is successful in big data, is now contributing to solving problems in the geosciences, yet there have been few applications in economic geology. This paper highlights the effectiveness of ML-based methods coupled with mineral geochemistry in revealing the origin of the Qingchengzi...

The Devonian sedimentary rocks in South China host numerous sulfide deposits (e.g. the Siding and Beishan Pb-Zn sulfide deposits, and the Yingde iron sulfide deposits) that are distinctly characterized by a wide variation of δ³⁴S values in sulfides (-28.7‰ to +42.8‰). Such signature, however, has not been investigated in depth and thus the metallog...
Article
Mechanisms for invisible gold enrichment hosted within Paleoproterozoic Fe-rich metamorphic rocks (marble, biotite schist, and quartz-feldspar schist) in the Liaodong Peninsula, NE China are still unclear. In this study, we choose the Xiaotongjiapuzi deposit as a case study, and present a detailed ore deposit geology and dataset of in situ chemical...
Article
Distal massive sulfide Ag-Pb-Zn mineralization is commonly associated with proximal porphyry Mo-(Cu) systems, but the vertical evolution of Ag-Pb-Zn-(Cu)-Mo distribution within porphyry systems remains poorly understood and documented. The Laochang deposit located in the southeastern Sanjiang metallogenic belt, SW China contains both the massive su...
Article
The Qingchengzi ore filed in the Liaodong Peninsula is a polymetallic ore field, including 15 Pb-Zn deposits, 3 Ag deposits, and 17 Au deposits. The mineralization is closely related to the Mesozoic magmatism. Among those deposits, two styles of vein mineralization, namely, Pb-Zn and Ag mineralization are developed in the ore field which has reserv...
Article
The Qingchengzi Orefield located in northeastern China hosts more than ten Pb-Zn deposits and several Au-Ag deposits. Among those, the Zhenzigou Zn-Pb deposit displays a typical stratiform morphology, comprising ore bodies in layers and lenses. The ore minerals are simply composed of sphalerite, galena, pyrite, and pyrrhotite, together with minor a...

Trace elements distribution in minerals and formation mechanism of visible gold are poorly understood in intrusion-related gold systems. Here, we choose the Baiyun gold deposit, which is hosted within the Paleoproterozoic metamorphic rocks in the Liaodong Peninsula, NE North China Craton (NCC), as a case study, to address these issues. The ore depo...
Article
Revealing hydrothermal evolution (from the early quartz-sulfide to the late fluorite-carbonate-sulfide stages) of skarn sulfide deposits is significant for understanding their ore formation processes, but the detailed studies are rare. In this study, we choose the Dongzhongla skarn Pb-Zn deposit (0.38 Mt Pb + Zn) located in central Lhasa, Tibet as...
Article
The Qingchengzi Pb–Zn–Au–Ag–Mo polymetallic ore field located in the Liaodong Peninsula, Liaoning Province, China, is spatially associated with multiple magmatism, which provide a classic example for studying the multiple tectonic and metallogenetic events. In this paper, we report some new geochemical and geochronological data of igneous rocks in...

The Baiyun gold deposit in the Liaodong gold province, NE, North China Craton (NCC), is a lode gold deposit hosted within the Paleoproterozoic metamorphic rocks. Disseminated and vein-hosted gold mineralization occurs along NWW-trending interlayer faults and NE-trending normal faults. Crosscutting relationships and mineral assemblages indicate hydr...
Article
With the development of two-dimensional trace element mapping by laser-ablation inductively-coupled-plasma mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS), it is now possible to reveal in much greater detail any compositional interior textures of pyrite, thus permitting the investigation of the history of pyrite crystals and providing new insight into the genesis an...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Most critical elements that underpin sustainable technology occur as trace constituents in relatively common minerals, mainly base metal sulphides. They often exist in conjunction with less desirable elements (i.e. as a penalty element). There is a reasonable understanding of the global bulk ratio at which these elements occur in major transition m...
