The loc.ation of the iron deposits and the major geologie features of the area are shown on figure 1. The iron deposits occupy the north west corner of a large tract (about 100 square miles) of metamor phosed Precambrian sedimentary and volcanic. rocks. The metamor phic rocks are flanked on the east and west by granite, on the north

Hogberg the staff, visiting scientists, and students of the Indiana University Field Station in the northern part of the range, for their cooperation and many cour
On the other hand, the stratigraphic record indicates that deposition of iron formations ceased during regressions in some basins and transgressions in others. To explain this, we propose that iron concentrations in the Precambrian ocean were greatest at mid
Some Precambrian banded iron formations also contain large (100 million tons) manganese deposits, and Mesozoic-Cenozoic oolitic manganese deposits of similar size are mined on Groote Eylandt, Australia, and at the periphery of the Black Sea, east Europe (Laznicka 1992). Several Mn-deposits and genetic aspects are reviewed in the Economic
Metamorphosed Precambrian sedimentary sequences are the sources for iron mineralisation of the BIF-hosted iron deposits in the eastern NCC ( Fig. 1 e.g., Shen et al., 2007Shen et al., , 2009.

Three major iron ore districts of the central United States are the residual limonite deposits of the Russellville, Alabama, district, the Tertiary limonite deposits of East Texas, and the residual limonite hematite deposits and Precambrian hydrotherm1l deposits of southeastern Missouri.

The Development Potential of Precambrian Mineral Deposits covers several aspects of Precambrian mineral resource potential and assessment towards mineral exploration and mineral reserves. This book contains 27 chapters and begins with an overview of the world production and
Apr 09, 2015 In these deposits, iron often occurs as siderite (FeCO3) or sometimes as oxides. ... Ores of this type were formed extensively in Precambrian iron formations by leaching of silica, which commonly constituted in excess of 50 % of the rock. Oxidation changed iron carbonate, silicate minerals, and magnetite to hematite or limonite. ...

Based on research on the Xinyu-type Sinian iron deposits in Jiangxi Province and metamorphosed iron deposits in Jiangkou and Qidong of Hunan, Sanjiang and Yingyangguan of Guangxi, Longchuan of Guangdong and some other areas in Fujian, the authors have come to the following conclusions 1. The metamorphosed late Precambrian iron ores widespread in south China may be roughly assigned to ...
The ironstone deposits of the area are of bedded oolitic type and occur in the form of two bands inter-bedded with ferruginous sandstone and clay capping Precambrian rocks. The thickness of the bands varies from 0.5 to 3.5 m. The magnetic measurements are condensing along the Six mines where the iron ore bodies are concentered.
Precambrian Deposits Hydrothermal deposits of magnetite and hematite are confined to the Precambrian rocks of the state. The Precambrian crops out at the apex of the Ozark dome and forms the St. Francois Mountains in Iron, St. Francois, Madison, and adjoining counties. Several mining methods have been employed for extraction
Most large deposits of iron ore are associated with iron formations for the simple reason that they have the highest iron concentrations of any normal rock type.
Jan 01, 2005 Iron formations are the most important precursors to economic iron ore deposits. Iron formations originated as chemical sediments rich in iron and silica that accumulated almost exclusively on Archean and early Paleo-proterozoic sea floors. Most are banded and known as banded iron formations (BIF) they originated as thinly layered chemical muds.
Bedded deposits of iron-formation are minor components of the thoroughly metamorphosed and deformed Precambrian rocks that make up the core of the Tobacco Root Mountains. The rocks are Archean in age they predate a major Precambrian orogeny that affected all of southwestern Montana about 2,750 m.y. ago.
BIF deposits are a direct result of oxygen release by Precambrian microbes. During much of the Precambrian the Earths surface waters and atmosphere were anoxic (oxygen-free) so that iron would exist mostly in its reduced (ferrous or Fe 2) form. Vast quantities of ferrous iron entered the ocean surface through volcanic action, upwelling, and run-off.
Iron ore deposits hosted by Precambrian banded iron formation (BIF) are the most important source of mineable iron. In Cameroon, they are located in the southern part of the country.

The Pikes Peak iron-formation is the largest of a dis continuous series of iron deposits, about 120 km long by 60 km wide, within the Precambrian Yavapai Series of central Arizona (fig. 1). The Pikes Peak deposit con sists of a series of lenticular bodies of interlaminated chert and iron oxide which form an outcrop belt about 6

Large deposits of Precambrian banded iron for-mation (BIF) exist in southwest Montana (Bayley and James, 1973). For example, the Carter Creek deposit, in the western Ruby Range, contains an estimated 95 million tons of ore grading 2829% Fe, mainly as magnetite (James, 1990). The smaller Kelly iron deposit, in the northeast Ruby Range ...
Iron ore deposits are known to occur in sedimentary, hydrothermal, and magmatic environments, but production today is almost entirely from three types of deposit deposits related to Precambrian banded iron formations provide about 90% of all iron ore mined, and the remainder is derived from metasomatic skarn and magmatic

Precambrian, period of time extending from about 4.6 billion years ago (the point at which Earth began to form) to the beginning of the Cambrian Period, 541 million years ago.The Precambrian encompasses the Archean and Proterozoic eons, which are formal geologic intervals that lasted from 4 billion to about 541 million years ago, and the Hadean Eon, which is an informal interval spanning from ...
This paper deals with a preliminary study of 13 localities of Precambrian ironformations in the Jiamusi median massif and determination of the gold content of 391 samples. It has been ascertained that the gold deposits are strictly controlled by the ironformations and exhibit obvious stratabound features.
Two iron deposits within the Precambrian mineral belt of Cameroon are described in detail for the first time the Archean Metzimevin replacement iron deposit enclosed in Fe-enriched itabirite, and the Proterozoic granite-hosted, shear zone-related Mayo Binka magnetite deposit.
