The Dabaoshan Pb–Zn polymetallic massive sulfide deposit, northern Guangdong province, is one of the most important mineral resources for iron, copper, lead, zinc, and sulfur in southern China with a reserve of approximately Mt of Fe, Mt Cu and Mt of Pb + steinrenovationanddesigngroup.com by: Volcanogenic massive sulfide ore deposits or VMS are a type of metal sulfide ore deposit, mainly Cu-Zn-Pb which are associated with and created by volcanic-associated hydrothermal events in submarine environments. These deposits are also sometimes called volcanic-hosted massive sulfide (VHMS) deposits. They are predominantly stratiform.

Volcanogenic Massive Sulfide Occurrence Model Volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits, also known as volcanic-hosted massive sulfide, volcanic-associated massive sulfide, or seafloor massive sulfide deposits, are important sources of copper, zinc, lead, gold, and silver (Cu, Zn, Pb, Au, and Ag).Brand: Bibliogov. Volcanic-Associated Massive Sulfide (VMS) Deposits Sediment-Hosted Massive Zinc-Lead Sulfide (SMS) by a better understanding of the geologic setting and genesis of the various classes of mineral deposits. A substantial part of the book is devoted to a discussion, with appropriate examples, of principles that govern the formation of.

The Besshi grade-tonnage model of Slack () was used in the calculation of undiscovered metal resources. In contrast with the model 24b of Singer (), which only included data for Besshi deposits in Japan, this model incorporates grade and tonnage data for Besshi deposits throughout the world, including those in the United States Appalachians, and is therefore more comprehensive. A type of volcanic massive sulfide deposits associated with ophiolite. Host of the deposit: Mafic volcanic rocks > Felsic volcanic rocks >> Siliciclastic rocks (Sedimentary rocks) The host of deposits is composed of large amount of mafic volcanic rocks with minor mafic .

Volcanic-associated massive sulfide deposits (VMS) are predominantly stratiform accumulations of sulfide minerals that precipitate from hydrothermal fluids at or below the sea floor, in a wide range of ancient and modern geological settings (Figs. 1, 2). Volcanic-associated massive sulfide deposits are, as a group, predominantly stratiform accumulations of sulfide minerals which formed on or near the sea floor by precipitation near the discharge site of hydrothermal fluids.

Volcanogenic massive sulfide ore deposits, also known as VMS ore deposits, are a type of metal sulfide ore deposit, mainly copper-zinc which are associated with and created by volcanic-associated hydrothermal events in submarine environments.

These deposits are also sometimes called volcanic-hosted massive sulfide (VHMS) deposits. The density generally is kg/m 3. Volcanic-associated massive sulfide deposits are among the most likely of all deposit types to have associated environmental problems, particularly acid mine drainage.

Analyses of water draining VMS deposits plot in the extreme metal-extreme acidity field (fig. VMS deposits have high iron- and base-metal-sulfide mineral contents.

Volcanic-associated massive sulfide deposits (VMS) are predominantly stratiform accumulations of sulfide minerals that precipitate from hydrothermal fluids at or below the seafloor, in a wide.

Massive Cu-Zn-Pb sulfide deposits in predominantly volcanic terranes have been variously termed as ‘volcanic-associated’, ‘volcanic-hosted’, and ‘volcanogenic’.

The term ‘volcanic-hosted’ is not Cited by: 1. Volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits, also known as volcanic-hosted massive sulfide, volcanic-associated massive sulfide, or seafloor massive sulfide deposits, are important sources of copper, zinc, lead, gold, and silver (Cu, Zn, Pb, Au, and Ag).

These deposits form at or near the seafloor where circulating hydrothermal fluids driven by magmatic heat are quenched through mixing with bottom. sediment-hosted massive sulfide, volcanic-associated massive sulfide, and volcanophile massive sulfide deposits.

Phanerozoic volcanic-associated massive sulfide deposits (VMSD) were subdivided into the Kuroko, Besshi, Cyprus, and Ural types, which differ in their ore geochemistry and mineralogy, in their composition of volcanic ore-hosting rock associations, and in the proportions of felsic and basaltic volcanics and sedimentary rocks in the volcanic steinrenovationanddesigngroup.com by: 1.

VMS Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide Deposits and Ni-Cu-Co Type Magmatic Massive Sulphide Deposits Volcanic-associated massive sulphide (VMS) deposits occur throughout the world and throughout the geological time column in virtually every tectonic domain that has submarine volcanic rocks as an important constituent.

Several small to medium-sized volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits have been identified within ophiolitic volcanic rocks of Josephine County, Oregon. Base Metals. Zinc-Copper volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposits have been observed as they form at mid-ocean ridges.

Chimneys formed at the ridges have as much as 29 weight % zinc and 6 weight % copper in sulfide minerals (pyrrhotite, pyrite, sphalerite, and chalcopyrite).
