About this book

Demonstrates the direct link between petroleum, the derivative of organic materials and ore bodies and highlight the common factors between hydrocatbons and mineral concentrations, such as heat sources, migration routes and likely traps.


Part I: Processes and Indicators in Organic - Metal Interaction. 1. Alteration and migration processes of organic matter in hydrothermal systems and implications for metallogenesis; B.R.T. Simoneit. 2. Paragenesis of gold- and hydrocarbon-bearing fluids in gold deposits; J. Parnell, A. McCready. 3.

Part II: Proterozoic Organic / Metal Associations. 1. Nature of organic matter in the early Proterozoic, earliest life forms and metal associations; M. Glikson, D. Taylor. 2. Organic and mineral matter in a Precambrian Shungite deposit from Karelia, Russia; M. Mastalerz, et al. 3. Influence of basin fill architecture on fluid flow and ore genesis in the Mount Isa Basin, northern Australia; B. McConachie, et al. 4.
