Metallogeny and Distribution of Minerals

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


This chapter explains metallogeny, mineralization and paragenesis of all mineral deposits. It is also tried herein to put forth the distribution of each type of mineral within metallogenic and mining zones and provinces.

Mineral deposits are categorized based on their distribution and paragenesis to allow prediction of their reserves and dispersal in different geological epochs. The reader would acquire a good temporal and spatial knowledge of all types of mineralization in Iran.

Although the concept of metallogeny is mostly believed to be applicable to metallic mineral deposits, it is tried to extend the application of metallogenic principles to non-metallic mineral deposits as well.
