Metallogenesis of Devonian-Carboniferous strata-bound carbonate-type uranium deposits in South China

Abstract

This paper deals with the geological conditions, mineralization characteristics, genetic types and space-time distribution of the Devonian-Carboniferous strata-bound carbonate-type uranium deposits in South China. These ore deposits are genetically classified as the leaching type and the leaching-hydrothermal superimposed type. These ore deposits are confined mainly to the strata (D2–3, C1) of platform-lagoon carbonate facies. Unique tectonic settings are a vital factor leading to the formation of these uranium deposits. A metallogenetic model for these uranium deposits has been proposed.
