Abstract

Quantitative characteristics of ore-bearing structures in kimberlite dikes and veins at the Nakyn field (Yakutia) were compared, and local tension and compression zones were identified. According to the results, dikes, veins and their swells are controlled by local strike-slip tension zones, while their morphology and dimensions are highly dependent on the tectonodynamic conditions the ore-bearing structures were formed under.
