Abstract

The Dashuigou Te deposit is a unique independent one found in the world, and hosted in the plagioclase arnphibolite. The upper intercept age of single zircon from the arnphibolite can be considered to be the crystallization age of the source-rock of the amphibolite (tholeiitic basalt), while the lower intercept is nearly consistent with the time of the tectono-thermal event.
