About this book

The unifying theme to the papers in this volume is that they deal with economic accumulations of sulfide minerals which, together with their host rocks, have been affected to varying degrees by regional metamorphism. The principle sulfide deposit types discussed are stratabound ZnCuPbAgBa deposits in regionally metamorphosed terranes which occur in a diverse variety of host lithologies. In addition other interesting deposit types are discussed and examples are presented from various parts of the world. The topics treated in this volume are: the interaction of sulfide minerals with their host rocks during regional metamorphism; the quantitative interpretation of P-T-time histories of regional metamorphism in which both sulfide and silicate phase relations must be considered together in order to meaningfully interpret the metamorphic history; the question of how to identify progenitors of rocks modified by tectonic and metamorphic processes and the implications of these studies; developing future exploration strategies for massive sulfide deposits in meatmorphic terranes.
