Mars may contain ores that would be very useful to potential colonists. The abundance of volcanic features together with widespread cratering are strong evidence for a variety of ores. While nothing may be found on Mars that would justify the high cost of transport to Earth, the more ores that future colonists can obtain from Mars, the easier it would be to build colonies there. The Permo-Triassic Noril'sk - Talnakh groups of deposits of Siberia, northern Russia are 35 km apart and are developed near the north-western margin of the Siberian Platform. The deposits are found within and adjacent to gabbro-dolerite sills that represent part of the feeder zone of the up to m thick, vast Permo-Triassic Siberian trap basalts. The book will be dominantly read by students and teachers, but could also be useful for professional geologists wanting a modern overview of a wide range of ore deposits and ore-forming processes. Ian Pitcairn Source: Economic Geology ' [the] layout, [the] clear presentation of the topic, the choice of sample deposits, the glossary of Author: John Ridley. The Sudbury District in Canada is the world's largest producer of nickel. Upper mantle xenoliths are found in some kimberlite and provide clues to the magma's origin. The source depth for kimberlite magmas is estimated at km, more than twice as deep as the source region for most magmas. Answers to Quiz on Volcanic Minerals. 1. On a.

Since the greater number of the ores are believed to have been precipitated from aqueous solution, or to have been otherwise formed through the agency of water, the term "ore-deposit" has resulted; and inasmuch as nearly all the other useful minerals owe their origin to the same agent, the term "mineral deposit" is equally well justified. The purpose of this article is to describe our current understanding of where, how, when, and why natural diamonds have been formed. This article reviews currently accepted areas of knowledge, along with topics that are still the subject of ongoing research, where science does not yet have all the answers.

Class NC- 1 (Chap. 3) comprises those related to komatiitic magmatism. Currently known deposits fall into two sub-classes, those related to Archean komatiites (e. g. the deposits of Western Australia, Zimbabwe and the Abitibi belt of Canada) and those related to Proterozoic komatiites (e. g.

His textbook, written as an introduction to mineralogy, is accurate, concise, informative and has been widely used.

Though it can not be learned from a book, a hint as to gold “colors” may be useful. Although the particles of gold are hammered so thin in their passage downwards that it may take one or two thousand of them to make the value of one cent, each of these small “colors” may be easily visible.

Ore is extracted from the earth through mining and refined, often via smelting, to extract the valuable element or elements. The grade of ore refers to the concentration of the desired material it contains.

The value of the metal an ore contains must be weighed against the cost. What has always been less clear is the role of partial melting and magma transport in their genesis in the context of the impact origin of the SIC.
