Skarns of the Kordonnoe tungsten deposit in Primorsky krai

  • V. I. Gvozdev
  • D. G. Fedoseev


Skarns of the Kordonnoe tungsten deposit located in the Malinovsky ore cluster in Primorsky krai were scrutinized based on the study of core samples. The mineral types of the skarns and the near-skarn rocks have been distinguished and briefly described and their ore specialization has been established. The typomorphic peculiarities of the rock-forming minerals were compared with those of the reference objects of the region. The problems of skarn genesis are discussed.
