Supergene Minerals | Article about Supergene Minerals by ...

Supergene minerals in oxidation zones of ore deposits —compounds of iron, copper, lead, and zinc (malachite, cerussite, anglesite, and so on)—are of great practical significance. The composition of supergene minerals from the same initial rock or ore depends on the climatic conditions under which the supergene processes take place.

Tectonic faults exert a fundamental control on the formation of many - if not most - supergene zinc deposits. Fault structures provide tectonically induced permeability, i.e. pathways for the downward percolation of oxidising meteoric water. The

Ore deposits formed by oxidation and supergene enrichment

Zinc: smithsonite. Deposits in the zone of supergene enrichment: In the supergene zone metals are concntrated in a narrow band just below the water table. This is the richest part of an ore deposit but in many instances, is either only very thin or not developed at all. The most common minerals found in supergene zones are:

Carbonate-hosted lead-zinc ore deposits - Wikipedia

Carbonate-hosted lead-zinc ore deposits are important and highly valuable concentrations of lead and zinc sulfide ores hosted within carbonate (limestone, marl, dolomite) formations and which share a common genetic origin.. These ore bodies range from 0.5 million tonnes of contained ore, to 20 million tonnes or more, and have a grade of between 4% combined lead and zinc to over 14% combined ...

Residual supergene mineralization (grading up to 10 to 30% zinc) occurs in the cavities of the same plateau and, to a lesser extent, in transported colluvial overburden. Ore minerals consist dominantly of hemimorphite, minor hydrozincite and smithsonite.
