Hydrothermal Processes Mineral Deposits

Hydrothermal mineral deposit geology Britannica

Hydrothermal mineral deposit, any concentration of metallic minerals formed by the precipitation of solids from hot mineral-laden water (hydrothermal solution). The solutions are thought to arise in most cases from the action of deeply circulating water heated by magma.

Hydrothermal mineral deposit - Wikipedia

Hydrothermal mineral deposits are divided into six main subcategories: porphyry, skarn, volcanogenic massive sulfide ... Ore minerals can form at the same time and from the same processes as the host rock, also termed as syngenetic, they can form slightly after the formation of the host rock, perhaps during weathering or compaction, also termed as diagenetic, or they

Hydrothermal Mineral Deposit - an overview ScienceDirect ...

A typical hydrothermal mineral deposit on an unsedimented mid-ocean ridge crest accumulates directly on top of basaltic or ultramafic rock. On sedimented ridges, minerals are deposited within and on top of the sediments (e.g., Middle Valley on the northern Juan de Fuca Ridge crest; Guaymas Basin, Gulf of California). Beneath the seafloor are networks of feeder cracks

Mineral deposit - Hydrothermal solution Britannica

Hydrothermal mineral deposits are those in which hot water serves as a concentrating, transporting, and depositing agent. They are the most numerous of all classes of deposit. Hydrothermal deposits are never formed from pure water, because pure water is a poor solvent of most ore minerals.

Veins and Hydrothermal Deposits - Geology In

Vein deposits of this nature are a type of hydrothermal deposit because the mineral species which compose the veins were precipitated by hot waters. However, sometimes the preexisting rock wall which contains the vein undergoes alteration. Portions of the host rock may either dissolve and be transported away or else react chemically with the circulating volatile fluids or

Hydrothermal Processes and Mineral Systems Franco Pirajno

The interaction of hydrothermal fluids with rockwalls, the hydrophere and the biophere, together with changes in their composition through time and space, contribute to the formation of a wide range of mineral deposit types and associated wallrock alteration. On Earth, sites of hydrothermal activity support varied ecosystems based on a range of chemotrophic

Ore forming processes

06/05/2020  Syngenetic ores deposits form with the formation of host rock or say, with the deposition of sediments. BIFs are the good example of syngenetic ore. Epigenetic ores are just opposite, means they form after the formation of host rocks. Examples are supergene and hydrothermal ore deposits. Genetic classification of ore forming processes

Wales has an abundance of hydrothermal (literally meaning ‘pertaining to hot water’) mineral deposits. Hydrothermal activity occurs at many levels in the Earth's crust, from deep-down (a kilometre or more) to the surface (fumarolic deposits around geysers) with hydrothermal fluids generated by igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary processes or a combination of these.

Hydrothermal Processes - Geochemical Perspectives

The nature of hydrothermal processes found from the rock record through mineralogical evidence on ore deposits was naturally supplemented by data from investigations of modern and active geothermal systems. Our initial consideration was to ascertain whether geothermal processes and hydrothermal ore genesis were related phenomena. In fact, it turned out that
