Shuitoushan Pb-Zn deposit is a low temperature type deposit, which was one of the significant results from the Zhenkang Pb-Zn-Fe-Cu polymetallic ore concentration area in Baoshan block, western Yunnan. The ore bodies of this deposit occurred as either stratiform-like or lentiform within the marbleization-limestone of the Upper Cambrian Baoshan Formation, and was controlled by NEE trending fault, with sphalerite and galena as main and chalcopyrite and pyrite as occasionally ore minerals; dolomite, chlorite, calcite, quartz and sericite as dominant gangue minerals. Based on the detailed study of the geological features of the deposit, combined with H, 0, S and Pb isotope compositions, this paper focused on the sources of metallogenic fluids and materials, and compared with the adjacent Luziyuan super-large Pb-Zn-Fe-Cu polymetallic deposit. This research indicates that the values of ΔD and Δ;180H20 of quartz in the deposit range from - 101. 1‰ to - 93. 3‰ with average of - 96. 85‰ (n = 4) and from 3. 37‰ to 3. 77‰ with average of 3. 57‰ (n = 4) respectively, implying magmatic as dominant early metallogenic fluids, while increasing gradually mixed with meteoric water later. δ34S values of the sulfides are all positive, varying from 4. ‰ to 12. 2‰ with average of 8. 23‰ (n = 10), and approaching Δ34S values (8. 9‰ to 12‰) of the adjacent Luziyuan deposit. This deposit can be divided into three metallogenic phases, phase II is the main metallogenic stage of the deposit related to sphalerite and galena (Δ34S values are mainly concentrated between 4. ‰ to 6. 2‰). TheΔ34SAveragBcan be used to represent approximately the Δ34SΣS of metallogenic hydrotherm i. e. Δ34SΣS≈ Δ34SAveragB=6. 56%0 (n=7). Δ34S values of sphalerite and galena are partially overlapped, but have the distribution characteristics of Δ34SSphalerite> Δ34SGalenaand Δ34SDark -brown>Δ34SBrown > Δ34SUiht-brownbetween the different colors of sphalerite on the whole, showing a sulfur isotope equilibrium fractionation, that S isotopic compositions are relatively stable, that the Shuitoushan deposit has the characteristics of the deep crustal magma in origin. Pb isotope analysis of metal sulfides in this deposit is made, and the results show that it is very concentrated (ranges from 18. 3408 to 18. 4483 with average of 18. 3815, and from 15. 8337 to 15. 9440 with average of 15. 8745, and from 38. 8224 to 39. 4391 with average of 38. 9941 respectively for 206Pb/204Pb,207Pb/204Pb and 208Pb/204Pb, n = 10). The points are mainly distributed above the upper crust evolution line, indicative of primarily the upper crust materials related to magmatism. This paper argues that the deep crustal magmatic hydrotherm in the mining area is the most important sources of metallogenic fluids and materials in the Shuitoushan deposit, that the mixing of fluids is an important mechanism for the precipitation and enrichment of metal elements, that the deposit is characterized by low temperature and epigenetic mineralization, speculating that the formation of the deposit is related to magmatic hydrothermalism of Late Yanshan epoch.

Luziyuan Pb-Zn deposit is located in Zhenkang-Baoshan block, southern section of Sanjiang metallogenic belt. The ore bodies occur in a set of carbonate rock series of the ∈3s2, ∈3s3. They are bedded, lenticular and vein, strictly controlled by structure. A large number of skarn minerals are occur in ore bodies and their surroundings. The REE distribution patterns of marbles and ores are enriched LREE and apparent medium negative Eu anomaly and unobvious Ce anomaly. The REE distribution patterns of Skarn include weak negative Eu and unobvious Eu anomaly or inclined positive anomaly. The marble, skarn and ores have similar REE distribution patterns which are enriched LREE, and have apparent negative Eu and unobvious Ce anomaly. Through the analysis of REE characteristics of rock (ore), and in combination with deposit geological characteristics, suggests that the mineralization mainly occurs under the environment of relative reduction and its ore-forming materials are mainly sourced from the deep hydrotherm, and partly from the ore-hosting strata (∈3s2, ∈3s3). The research shows that the deposit hosted in the carbonate formation is a hydrothermal filling and metasomatic skarn-type Pb-Zn deposit obviously controlled by tectonics.

I.uziyuan super-large Pb-Zn-Fe polymetallic deposit is a typical representative of the similar deposits located in Baoshan bloek. The ore bodies oeeur as statiform-like along the strata, and the ore-hearing wall-roeks are mainly skarns. 'Il>e geological, geophysical, geochemical prospecting and remote sensing interpretation evidences all showed that the concealed roek body existed in the deep. While the inferred hidden body and the accurate mineralization age hasn' t been found and obtained in the known deposit, thus the ore genesis still remains controversial. This research discovers that there is an obvious Symbiotic relationship between rhodonite and iron, lead-zinc, and copper ores. In addition, the amount and grain size of rhodonite gradually increase down the deep. All these phenomena ohserved in the deposit are of great significance for us to undeistand the origin of it. Major, trace, rare earth elements and H-0 isotope compositions of the rhodonite are studied in this paper, with the rults that the rhodonite mainly comprises SiO2 of 47. 01%∼ 48. 66%, Mn() of 34. 42% - 40. 19%, CaO of 7. 52% ∼ 8. 51 %, FeC) of 2. 85% ∼ 8. 76%, MgO of 0. 22% ∼ 0. 28%, and lower TiO2, and Al2O3. The incompatible elements (such as Li, Be, Sc, Zr, Bb, Sr) are not depleted, or weakly depleted in the rhodonite; while some compatible elements including Cr, (x>, and Ni are obviously depleted; the BFEs' total contents of both rhodonite and sphalerite are lower δDV.SH0W and δ18sOH20values of the rhodonite range from -81. l%c to -73.3%c, 5.4%c to 6. respectively, which are all plotted within magmatic waters' area on the 5l)v.S|,o∗ diagram. Y/Ho value of ore minerals is relatively identical to the surrounding Yanshanian granites such as Zhibenshan and Caojian. All of tlie above-mentioned features demonstrate that the metallogenic fluids of Luziyuan deposit are characterized by the deep magmatic hydrothermal solutions. Therefore, it is suggested that the luziyuan Pb-Zn-Fe polymetallic deposit is a distal-skarn type Pb-Zn deposit closely related to the concealed intermediate and acidic igneous rocks of Yanshan Period.

The Xiangcheng-Luoji area is located in the conjunction of the southern part of the "Sanjiang" mineralization belt and the west margin of Yangtze craton. The geological studies were carried out to know the Indosinian large porphyry Cu polymetallic deposits. Recent studies revealed that the area existed in the superposition of Late Yanshanian acidic intrusive rock belt and developed Mo-Cu polymetallic mineralization where promising exploration results have been achieved. Through the systematic study of geochronology, formation age of the Renlin Mo-minieralization monzogranite is 81.7±1.1 Ma. Re-Os dating results concentrate on 82.34±1.2-88.27±1.23 Ma for the model ages of molbdenite of Tongchanggou Mo deposits, average age is 85 ± 2 Ma where seven data points constitute a good isochron which shows that they were the same period products of mineralization. Geochemical features shown that the rocks have a high content of SiO2 (66.59-77.36wt%), alkaline-rich (K2O=2.68-6.08wt%; Na2O=0.50-4.91wt%; K2O/Na2O ratios are 0.71-5.56, where average ratio of 1.89) and have aluminum-rich features (Al2O310.38-15.15wt%) with σ values less than 3.3. Which indicate that they belong to the high-K calc-alkali to shoshonite series. Geochemistry of Yanshanian intrusions shows that rocks are enrich in LREE with obvious negative δEu anomalies, enrichment of trace elements like, LILE elements (Rb, Th, Ba) with a relative loss of Ba, and loss of high field strength elements (Nb, Ta, P, Ti) and HREE elements. The granite genetic classification diagram shows that the granites belong to A-type granite and formatted in syn-collision tectonic environment. Meanwhile, the Yanshanian granites also inherited the characteristics of island arc environment which formed in the process of crustal melting caused by upwelling of asthenospheric substances in the extensional tectonic background. The process of partial melting existed substances from the deep (lower crust or upper mantle) which have been added. In the Xiangcheng-Luoji area, monzogranite and granodiorite porphyry bodies are widely developed Mo polymetallic mineralization, the deep porphyry mineralization have great potential for geological prospecting. © 2014 Geological Society of China.

The Sanjiang Tethyan Metallogenic Domain (STMD) is an important part of the Tethyan giant metallogenic belt. The Yidun Arc is a part of the STMD in the eastern Tibetan Plateau. Recently, four newly discovered Mo-Cu-(W) ore deposits related to granitic intrusions were found distributed along the north-south strike in the southern Yidun Arc, which are identified as the Xiuwacu, Relin, Hongshan, and Tongchanggou deposits herein. These four deposits formed along high-angle north-northwest or north-west strike-slip faults, with vein-type and porphyry-type Mo-Cu mineralization developed in the intrusions. Molybdenite Re-Os and zircon U-Pb dating together with zircon Hf isotopes and whole-rock geochemistry of the intrusions were studied to discern the relationship between mineralization and magmatism, metallogenesis, and tectonic settings. Molybdenite from skarn-type mineralization at the Hongshan deposit has a Re-Os isochron age of 81.2±2.6Ma (MSWD=1.3, n=5) consistent with previously published zircon U-Pb ages and Re-Os ages of porphyry-type Mo mineralization. These results indicate that the Hongshan is a Late Cretaceous porphyry-skarn Cu-Mo deposit. Zircon U-Pb ages of the granitic intrusions in the Xiuwacu, Relin, and Tongchanggou deposits varying from ~87.4Ma to ~82.7Ma. Combined with published molybdenite Re-Os age spectrum (~85Ma to ~81.2Ma), it is proposed that the Mo-Cu-(W) mineralization in the Shangri-La region is spatially, temporally, and probably genetically related to the Late Cretaceous granitic intrusions. The Relin, Hongshan, and Tongchanggou intrusions have high SiO2 (65.2-70.0wt.%), Sr (363-905ppm), Sr/Y (22-72), and La/Yb (37-69) ratios, and low Y (11.6-17.0ppm) and Yb (0.97-1.59ppm), which displayed adakitic affinities. Their low MgO (0.66-1.44wt.%), Mg# (25-46), variable negative zircon εHf(t) values (-7.9 to -2.3), and Proterozoic two-stages Hf model ages (TDM2=1.13-1.62Ga) suggest that they were probably dominantly derived from partial melting of thickened lower continental crust. According to the tectonic evolution of the Bangong Meso-Tethys Ocean during the Late Mesozoic, the Late Cretaceous igneous event and mineralization in the Yidun Arc likely formed under a late- or post-collision extensional environment, probably related to the collision between the Lhasa and Qiangtang terranes during the Late Cretaceous. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

Along the alkali-rich porphyry belt on the western margin of the Yangtze platform, only a few medium-small size porphyry Cu-Mo deposits and medium-large size Pb deposits were previously found; nevertheless, quite a number of large, medium and small size Au (Ag) deposits have been discovered in recent years, which implies fairly good prospect in search for mineral deposits. The authors systematically collected and analyzed the achievements obtained by previous researchers, summed up such characteristics of alkali-rich porphyries in this area as petrology, petrochemistry, rock alteration, REE partitioning, inclusion geochemistry, stable isotopes and the difference between ore-bearing porphyries and barren ones. On such a basis, the authors hold that that the alkali-rich porphyries in this belt are composed mainly of alkali-rich granite porphyries and alkaline orthophyre, and belong to hypabyssal-ultrahypabyssal intrusive bodies of early-middle Himalayan period. The rocks have somewhat lower Si2O content and rich alkali and high potassium, similar to things of "A" type granites in Australia. The intrusive bodies have basically similar REE total content, LREE/HREE ratios and δEu values, and their REE pattern curves are all steeply right-oblique smooth curves, suggesting that the rock-forming and ore-forming materials were derived from the upper mantle and the lower crust; in addition, the magmatic evolution and genesis of the two types of alkali-rich porphyries show identity. Generally speaking, large size Cu, Mo, Pb, Zn, Au and Ag deposits are likely to be found in the intrusive bodies characterized by comparatively small size, complex shape, somewhat lower alkali, richness of ore-forming elements such as Cu, Mo, Pb, Zn, Au ang Ag and REE alkaline metallic elements like Li, Rb and Cs, varied alteration types, strong alteration, obvious zoning and somewhat higher REE total content (ΣREE).

The Geza volcanic magmatic arc in the south end part of Yidun island arc is characterized by Indosinian large scale intermediate-acid volcanic magmatic rock in NW zonal distribution. In this paper, we divide this magmatic rock zone into the west Lannitang-Chundu porphyry metallogenesis zone and the east Yaza-Pulang porphyry metsllogenesis zone according to the distribution, type, age, structural environment and metallogenesis, etc , of the volcanic magmatic rock and indicate the emplacement time of west porphyry zone is 15 ∼ 25Myr earlier than that of the east porphyry zone and the different metallogenesis characteristics of them. We propose that there is a Yanshanian superimposition of wide Mo (W, Cu) metallogenesis, Le., NS superimposition of S-type granite emplacement on the Indosinian island arc magmatic rock zone, outcropped or semi-buried, buried from N to S. Xiuwacu, Relin, Hongshan, Tongchanggou, etc. , many granite (porphyry) rock bodies have been outlined in Yunnan. The quartz veined type and altered rock type Mo metallogenesis is developed in the altered granite ( porphyry ) , whereas the hydrothermal veined type metallogenesis is along the fault zone and boundary surface between different rock in the wall rock. According to the previous study, the diagenesis ages of Xiuwacu and Relin are separately 84.4 ± 1.1Ma, 81.7 ± 1.1Ma; metallogenesis ages separately 83 ± 1Ma, 81.2 ± 2. 3Ma (after Li et al. , 2007 and Yin et al. , 2009). In our study, the molybdenite Re-Os isochron dating of deep buried rock body of Hongshan Cu orefield is 80.2Ma We think that the metallogenesis of Yanshanian rock body still shows the metallogenesis series of porphyry type Mo (Cu) deposit-→contact skam type Mo (Cu) deposit-→outer surrounding homfels Mo (Cu) deposit, hydrothermal veined Cu-Pb-Zn deposit, etc from inner to outer (from deep to shallow) of rock body. Therefore, we can carry out the vacancy prognosis based upon this metallogenesis series and guide the ore prospecting in the future.

Field investigation, LA-ICP-MS zircon U-Pb dating and Hf isotope composition analysis applied in this paper show that: In mangshi area, southeastern margin of the Tibet Plateau, Ordovician conglomerate are unconformable on Cambrian and Pre-Cambrian metamorphic rocks. Zircon rim U-Pb age of the augen gneiss collected from Longjiang area is 518 ∼502Ma, representing the protolith granite crystallization time. The spectrum of U-Pb age for inherited zircons is similar with the Lhasa terrane, implicates that Tengchong terrane and Lhasa terrane belong to a unified continent during the early stage of Early Paleozoic. The feature of negative and large range of εHf(t) values (-15.7 ∼ -2.0) of zircon rims, combined with field obervition and petrographic study, shows that the protolith granite of the augen gneiss originated from old crustal injected by varing mantle components, may represent a part of a magmatic arc. Through field observations and zircon isotope analysis, we explicitly pointed to the existence of Early Palaeozoic orogenic event in southeastern margin of the Tibetan Plateau. Compared with the same period of tectonic events happened in Lhasa, Himalaya and Qiangtang terranes, we regard the Early Paleozoic orogenic belt in the southeastern Tibet Plateau is a part of the Andean-type Orogenic belt formed along the northern margin of Gondwana, provids new evidences for understanding the evolution of the Gondwana during Early Paleozoic.
