Mineral zonation in the Lubin-Sieroszowice mining district, Kupferschiefer-type deposit, SW Poland

AUTHORS: Jadwiga Pieczonka, Adam Piestrzyński

ABSTRACT: Mineral zonation is discussed in both the scale of minerals and the scale of the deposit. Although zonation of ore minerals is very rarely observed, because of the low-temperature association, however some crystals show perfectly zoned structures that are also refect in their chemical composition. Mineral zonation at the deposit scale is visible in a central ore body composed of chalcocite that is surrounded by bornite with minor chalcopyrite and galena. Mineral zonation helps understand problems of mineral genesis.
