Abstract

Deposits and ore-deposits of various minerals are genetically and spatially related to geological structures. Therefore, prospecting and exploration are impossible without their mapping, the study of the internal structure and determine the mechanism of education. Horizontal shears are great importance among the large variety of geological structures and their certain parts are connected ore mineralization. The study of the structural paragenesis of shear zones and their density characteristics showed gravimetry is that an effective method of studying these areas. The gravimetry allows to define the sign of shear (right, left), width of a shear zone, position of its active and passive wings and rheological conditions of a shear formation. Thus, this method allows for an unambiguous mapping of the shear zone in the gravitation field and studying their internal structure, especially in confined areas. In the article petro density basing for the use of gravimetry for the study of shear zones and examples of their mapping for different regions of the Urals are suggested.
