A well-known mineral district in the state is in northwestern Ohio (Findlay Arch mineral district) where sometimes-spectacular crystals of calcite celestite dolomite fluorite and others are present in small to large vugs—or cavities inside rocks—in dolomites of Silurian age Unfortunately natural outcrops of these rocks are rare in this glaciated area and most exposures are in

Rocks and Minerals

Several types of REE-enriched mineral deposits are reviewed including deposits in carbonatites alkaline igneous rocks sedimentary phosphate-rich rocks (phosphorite) regions containing REE-rich veins iron oxide deposits containing REE-bearing apatite monazite-xenotime-bearing placer deposits (heavy-mineral sands) and ion-adsorption clay deposits (REE in granite-derived regolith) A

Hydrothermal mineral deposits are formed when minerals are deposited and concentrated from hot (hydrothermal) waters that are superheated by molten magma and ascend to spring at the earth's surface The sulphide-metal minerals that hotsprings deposit are generally concentrated in the cracks and faults along which the fluids rise to the surface

Our Earth is made mostly of rocks The rocks are composed of mineral grains combined in different ways and having various properties Minerals are naturally occurring chemical compounds in which atoms are arranged in three-dimensional patterns The kind of elements and their arrangements lead to a particular appearance and certain properties for each mineral

Chemical Deposition of Sedimentary Mineral Deposits In the weathering of rocks iron and manganese are dissolved as carbonates by water containing carbonic acid and are carried down to swamps lakes and seas where they have been deposited as beds of ore under some circumstances they have been deposited as carbonates (siderite and rhodochrosite) and under others as oxides (limonite

Mineral Deposit Types Mineral deposits are metallic or hard rocks deposits (metals such as Au Ag Cu Pb Zn Ni or Co the dominant commodity energy mineral deposits (including coal and uranium deposits) and industry mineral deposits (including mineral products of this kind) sand gravel zeolite phosphate etc "Mineral deposit types" are groups of mineral deposits having similar

Mineral Deposits

Mineral Deposits The useful minerals occur in a variety of forms and conditions and the deposits which are composed of or include them may be classified into superficial stratified and unstratified deposits I Superficial Deposits In these the materials are yet unconsolidated and have been washed down from cliffs and mountain slopes composed of rocks that contain metals ores and

Mineral deposits What are minerals? Minerals are solid substances that are present in nature and can be made of one element or more elements combined together (chemical compounds) Gold Silver and carbon are elements that form minerals on their own They are called native elements Instead ordinary kitchen salt is a chemical compound that is called rock salt which is a mineral formed of

With a few exceptions the spectacular mineral deposits for which Michigan is justly famous occur in rocks of Precambrian age found in the western Upper Peninsula The Precambrian Age involves 85 to 90% of all geologic time The Precambrian age begins at some yet undetermined time between 4500 and 3800 million years ago and extends to 600 million years ago

All ore deposits are mineral deposits but the reverse is not true Ore deposit is an economic term while mineral deposit is a geologic term Whether a given mineral deposit is also an ore deposit depends on many factors other than the level of concentration and the size of the deposit all factors that affect the mining processing and transporting of the ore must be considered as well

Mississippi Valley Lead-Zinc deposits are a family of ore deposits formed by sea water flowing through sedimentary rocks including limestone dolostone salt and shale The brines (seawater) flows through these recently deposited sediments reacting with the limestone and changing it with addition of magnesium from the water Calcium in calcite is replaced by magnesium forming the mineral
