Metallogenic Mineral Provinces and World Class Ore ...
Some geological areas are richer than average in certain elements, and according to size they are called metallogenic provinces or districts. Also, some individual mineral deposits are so huge as to deserve world-class status. This section will examine some of the most striking examples of natural mineral wealth on the European continent.
Metallogenic province, geographic area characterized by a particular assemblage of mineral deposits, or by a distinctive style of mineralization. The causes of formation of metallogenic provinces are not clear. Some provinces were formed as …

Dec 01, 2020 · The Carajás Province is one of the most important mineral provinces in the world, world-famous for its well-endowed and varied mineral deposits, including Fe, Mn, Ni, Pd-Pt and Au, as well as containing the largest Cu reserves in Brazil (Dardenne and Schobbenhaus, 2001, Vasquez et al., 2008).
Where are The metallogenic mineral provinces in Europe?
Many of them are situated in a composite sulphidic ore belt running SE-NW through central Finland and into Sweden, including the Outokumpu region in the southeast, Pyhäsalmi in the centre, and the Swedish Skellefte district in the northwest.
A geologic or geomorphic province is a spatial entity with common geologic or geomorphic attributes. A province may include a single dominant structural element such as a basin or a fold belt, or a number of contiguous related elements.
Where are the major mineral deposits in the world?
The Olympic Dam deposit was the first discovery, in 1975, of a deeply-buried, major ore deposit in the world. The geophysical characteristics of so-called iron-oxide copper-gold (IOCG) deposits have allowed the recent discovery of major deposits at Prominent Hill, Carrapateena and Hillside.
The veins are rich in pitchblende, silver-bearing sulphoarsenides and native silver, along with other rare minerals and more common sulphides. The Jáchymov ore district was discovered in 1516 AD, and quickly developed into one of the largest mining centres of Europe.
