Many ore deposits (copper, lead, zinc, gold, and silver, for example) were produced by hydrothermal solutions created during late stages of cooling of granite bodies. These may be emplaced around the peripheries or related to fissures and fractures within bodies of granite. approx. 27% quartz + mica, amphibole, pyroxene, albite feldspar, a ...
This type of deposits has been attributed to a broad category of iron-oxide-copper-gold deposits from around the world. Olympic Dam (Australia) is the only known representative of this type with significant by-product uranium resources. The deposit contains the world largest uranium resources with more than 2 Mt of uranium at low grade (230 ppm).
with biotite or biotite-muscovite granite or, as in Bolivia, with shal--low-seated volcanic rocks such as quartz latite or dacite. The g~anites with associated tin deposits are generally referred to as tin granites. As a group, the tin deposits a,re probahly the best example o:f epige netic magmatic ore deposits.
Blanket Deposits 11a Blanket replacement deposits are well developed at Mimoso and elsewhere in Baia, at many places in Minas Gerais, and in Goiaz. It is common for this type of deposit to be associated with veins in shale sandstone, or quartzite, and with pipes, pods, and associated forms in sandstones and quartzites.
The focus later turned to iron ore and gold. Some 10.7 million tons were produced in 2012, making iron ore now the lead mining activity in Malaysia; with deposits found in areas such as Pahang, Johor and Perak, with the highest quality found in Terengganu.
Gold and iron-ore production from the South Pass granite-greenstone terrain is estimated at more than 325,000 ounces of gold and more than 90 million tons of ore. The mineralized terrain lies in the southwest part of a fragmented Archean (>2.5 b.y.) cratonic block known as the Wyoming Province.

The iron-oxide copper-gold type of deposit has been recognized as a distinct deposit type only since the discovery of the giant Olympic Dam deposit in South Australia in the 1980s. The Olympic Dam deposit is unusual in that it contains large amounts of rare earth elements and uranium.
Dysprosium (Dy), one of the heavy rare earth elements, is used mainly as an additive for NdFeB permanent magnets which are installed in various modern industrial products such as voice coil motors in computers, factory automation machinery, hybrid and electric vehicles, home electronics, and wind turbine, to improve heat resistance of the magnets. Dy has been produced about 2,000t per year ...
Use of granite for construction purposes is not believed to cause additional acute toxic effects. However, repeated overexposures to very high levels of respirable crystalline silica (quartz, cristobalite, tridymite) for periods as short as six months have caused acute silicosis. Acute silicosis is a …
· Iron Ore: Owing to strong demand from China, Malaysia''s main iron-ore export destination, and with higher prices, output during the year increased by 17.8 per cent to 1,914,232 tonnes from 1,625,253 tonnes in 2015. They were produced from 41 mines located in Pahang, Johore, Perak, Kelantan, Kedah and Terengganu.

This study confirms that the nature of magma sources and redox states of magmas were key in the formation of the tin-rich granites and associated tin deposits and that the granite-related tin mineralization in Peninsular Malaysia was closely related to the evolution of the eastern Paleo-Tethys.
Bera Lake is known as the first RAMSAR site and is the largest natural lake in Malaysia. Sediment quality guidelines (SQGs) and Geoaccumulation index were used to evaluate Bera Lake sediment contamination. Five undisturbed cores were collected from Bera Lake sediment. Major and trace levels of elements were determined for 132 subsamples using an inductively coupled plasma mass …
Mexico); and associated with iron ore minerals (China). Bastnasite has now replaced monazite as the principal source of REE. The Mountain Pass deposit, which contains reserves of }.6 million tons, produces 50 percent of the world''s annual REO production (Anstett, 1986). The Chinese iron deposits may contain as much as }6 million tons
• Placer Uranium/Au deposits at Elliot Lake, Ontario have commercially produced REE • Ore is hosted by pyritic quartz-pebble conglomerates formed from intense weathering of an Archean granite source rock ~1.4 Ga • REE are associated with uranium minerals including: uraninite brannerite, and uranothorite, monazite and zircon is also present
Abstract. Primary tin mineralization in Peninsular Malaysia can be grouped into four broad classes: (i) pneumatolytic-hydrothermal lodes, veins, stockworks and stringers, (ii) pyrometasomatic skarns which can be subdivided into stanniferous and stanniferous-iron varieties, (iii) tin-bearing pegmatites and aplites, and (iv) stanniferous polymetallic sulphide bodies.
granite itself and in the slates around the granite aureoles (Barton 1969). The deposits include, apart from tin, copper, iron and china clay. In the south-west the discovery of prehistoric metal-working activities has depended on sporadic finds such as a pebble of cassiterite on the floor of a prehistoric hut in Devon (Fox 1957:30) and a few ...
Other deposits include hematite-breccia complex deposits, magmatic-hydrothermal uranium in iron-oxide Cu-Au deposits and quartz-pebble conglomerate deposits (World Nuclear, 2010). Thorium is mined in conjunction with uranium, so much that estimates of reserves for these elements are made based off of uranium content.
Laterite, soil layer that is rich in iron oxide and derived from a wide variety of rocks weathering under strongly oxidizing and leaching conditions. It forms in tropical and subtropical regions where the climate is humid. Lateritic soils may contain clay minerals; but they tend to be silica-poor,
Iron ores are rocks and minerals from which metallic iron can be economically extracted. The ores are usually rich in iron oxides and vary in color from dark grey, bright yellow, or deep purple to rusty red. The iron is usually found in the form of magnetite (Fe 3 O 4, 72.4% Fe), hematite (Fe 2 O 3, 69.9% Fe), goethite (FeO(OH), 62.9% Fe), limonite (FeO(OH)·n(H 2 O), 55% Fe) or siderite (FeCO ...
A placer deposit buried by younger sediments or lava is known as a deep lead. Deposits in oceanic submerged river channels are important sources of tin. More than half of the world''s tin production is from deposits such as these, mainly in Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand. Associated metals

· Geochemical and mineralogical studies were conducted on the 12-m-thick weathering profile of the Kata Beach granite in Phuket, Thailand, in order to reveal the transport and adsorption of rare earth elements (REE) related to the ion-adsorption type mineralization. The parent rock is ilmenite-series biotite granite with transitional characteristics from I type to S type, abundant in REE (592 ppm).
In Malaysia tin is found in some limestone areas, having been washed down from the granite ranges. These tin-bearing granites generally date to the Mesozoic era. The tin-bearing alluvium was possibly trapped by the buried karst and accumulated in rich deposits. Notable examples are in Perak and Perlis, as well as Selangor.
Iron oxide copper-gold (IOCG) deposits (Hitzman et al., 1992) are a diverse family of mineral deposits characterised by the following features: (1) Cu with or without Au, as economic metals, (2) hydrothermal ore styles and strong structural controls, (3) abundant magnetite and/or hematite, (4) Fe oxides with Fe/Ti greater than those in most igneous rocks, and (5) no clear spatial associations ...

Early pioneers from Sweden, Norway, Germany, Scotland and Italy brought stone cutting skills with them to Minnesota. The first granite quarry was opened in the St. Cloud area in 1868. Limestone, marble, sandstone, and granite were important in the construction of bridges and buildings. Minnesota continues to be a strong supplier of quarry stone.
The study aimed at investigating the chemical composition and microstructure of raw iron ore from the deposits in Muko area (south-western Uganda). The quality of this iron ore was evaluated to establish its suitability to serve as a raw material for iron production. Samples were taken from the six hills of Muko ore deposits and tests carried out to establish their composition and properties.
