Abstract

The Arsen’evskoe deposit with large tin reserves is traditionally considered as a reference object of the Kavalerovo ore district. New data obtained allow us to draw genetic conclusions. It is shown that the deposit combines the products of three tin-bearing stages and final tungsten mineralization. Ores of different stages related to different magmatic complexes represent tin-sulfide, cassiterite-sulfide-silicate, and cassiterite-quartz formations and are complex in composition (Sn, Pb, Zn, Cu, Ag). Large volumes of multimetal ores of the Arsen’evskoe deposit are prepared for mining; their reserves can be doubled at minor additional costs. The inferred reserves of complex ores of the Arsen’evskoe and other ore fields of the Kavalerovo district are an order of magnitude higher than the known reserves and are large enough for highly profitable mining production.
