    Mineral Deposits of Finland is the only up-to-date and inclusive reference available that fully captures the scope of Finland’s mineral deposits and their economic potential. Finland hosts Europe’s most mature rocks and large cratonic blocks, analogous to western Australia and Southern Africa, which are the most mineralized terrains on Earth. A mineral-deposit density model for volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits was constructed from 38 well-explored control areas from around the world. Control areas contain at least one exposed volcanogenic massive sulfide deposit. The control areas used in this study contain kuroko, 14 Urals, and 25 Cyprus massive sulfide subtypes of volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits.

      The widespread recognition of modern seafloor Volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits and associated hydrothermal vent fluids and vent fauna has been one of the most astonishing discoveries in the last 50 years, and seafloor exploration and scientific studies have contributed much to our understanding of ore-forming processes and the tectonic Author: Pat Shanks, Roland Thurston. VMS deposits are estimated to have supplied over 5 billion tonnes of sulphide ore. This includes at least 22% of the world’s Zn production, 6% of the world’s Cu, % of the world’s Pb, %.

    Furthermore, metallogenetic studies in the Colombian Andes are few in number and in general do not mention massive sulfide type deposits as an important genetic class.

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. ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: v, pages: illustrations, maps ; 29 cm. Contents: The history of mining and metallurgy in Latin America, BC AD / Robert J.

Cathro --Volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits of Latin America: an overview / Ross Sherlock and Michael Michaud --The Guerrero terrane of western Mexico: geology and massive sulphide. This page book contains 37 papers on Volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits in the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America.

The papers range from descriptions and research on individual deposits to district wide compilations and synthesis. Volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposits are also known as volcanic-associated, volcanic-hosted, and vol-cano-sedimentary-hosted massive sulphide deposits. They typically occur as lenses of polymetallic massive sulphide that form at or near the seafloor in submarine volcanic envi-ronments.

They form from metal-enriched fluids associated. Volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposits are mineral accumulations that form on or near the seafloor at sites of high-temperature hydrothermal vent fluid discharge.

The deposits are formed by the precipitation of dominantly sulfide minerals around hydrothermal vents (e.g., black and white smokers) where high-temperature, metal- and sulfur-rich fluids mix with cold seawater. 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. If we start with VMS Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide Ore Deposits and their Mineralization we see from this image shows some of the sulphide chimneys associated with the model black smoker VMS deposit.

VMS will emit black plume of hot water venting from one of the chimneys. You’ll remember this cross section from reads on both porphyry deposits and epithermal, in the case of VMS deposit, we.

Volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits (VMS) are a thoroughly researched deposit class. Following the discovery in of active hydrothermal vent systems in the present-day oceans (Hannington et al., ), research on virtually all aspects of this deposit class has publication of the VMS synthesis in the Economic Geology Seventy-Fifth Anniversary Volume (Franklin et al.

Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide Deposits. Much of the copper, zinc, lead, silver, and gold mined in Canada is mined from volcanic–hosted massive sulphide (VHMS) deposits associated with submarine volcanism (VMS deposits). Examples are the deposits at Kidd Creek, Ontario, Flin Flon on the Manitoba-Saskatchewan border, Britannia on Howe Sound.

The average massive sulphide camp in Canada has about 9 deposits, but ranges from four (Manitowadge) to 21 (Noranda), However, an individual deposit may consist of a number of closely associated, discrete lenses ranging from several thousand to several million tons in size (ea.

Millenbach Mine was 16 geologically discrete ore lenses). The data was recently used for mineral-deposit density models (Mosier and others, ; Singer, ). In this paper, deposits were used to construct revised grade and tonnage models.

Our new models are based on a reclassification of deposits based on host lithologies: Felsic, Bimodal-Mafic, and Mafic volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits. A general review of volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits in China. Ore Geol. Rev., Volcanogenic, massive sulphide deposits in China have, for the past forty years, been an important source ofCu, Zn, Pb and sulphur, and of a number of.

Other articles where Volcanogenic massive sulfide is discussed: mineral deposit: Volcanogenic massive sulfides: Wherever volcanism occurs beneath the sea, the potential exists for seawater to penetrate the volcanic rocks, become heated by a magma chamber, and react with the enclosing rocks—in the process concentrating geochemically scarce metals and so forming a hydrothermal.

The main objective of this paper is to identify the geochemical, hydrological, igneous and tectonic processes that led to the variations in the physical (size, geometry) and chemical (mineralogy, metal ratios and zoning) characteristics of volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits with respect to space (from a scale of mining district size area to a global scale) and time (from a.
