Metallogenic and Mineralization Phases of Iran

  • Mansour Ghorbani
Part of the Springer Geology book series (SPRINGERGEOL)


This chapter describes the mineralization phases of all the minerals reported from Iran. Since there is a good association between the mineralization phases and orogenic and magmatic stages, it is tried to briefly explain the latter as well.

This chapter depicts the type of mineral deposits formed in each geological period and orogenic phase, and also explains the location of these mineral deposits within various geological and mining zones. The temporal and spatial distribution of Iran’s mineral deposits, ranging from Late Proterozoic to present time, are clearly described.
