Course objectives: The course is provided to get a student acquainted with geological and geochemical processes responsible for formation of mineral deposits. Ore petrology and metallogeny is also an essential element in reconstruction of Dinaride evolution.
Course content: Earth structure, origin of magma, elements of global tectonics. Geology of Dinarides. Deposits related to liquid magma processes, crystallisation differentiates, liquid segregates. Chromite, Ni-Co sulphides (platinum), carbonatite, komatiite, diamond, nefelinite, titanomagnetite, apatite, late-magmatic (Kiruna type), 5. Postmagmatic, pegmatites. Pneumatolites, (skarns, greisens). Massive sulphides (Cypruss type). Hydrothermal deposits (kata-, meso-epi), Cu-porphyries, (cementation zone). High-sulphidation, Low-sulphidation, (Bor, Majdanpek, Trepča). With loose connection to magmatism (Ljubija siderite deposit), SEDEX (Fe-Vareš, Hg-Idrija, Mn-Čevljanovići), Kuroko, Mississippi valley Pb-Zn (Mežica, Bleiberg, Olovo). Sedimentary deposit, Sabkha related, (Cu-schists, Ba-Lokve), resistates (Au, Pt, diamonds, cassiterite). Precipitates (U-Žirovski Vrh, Colorado plateau type), hidrolysates (bauxites, laterites, Ni-laterites). Metamorphogenic and metamorphose deposits (Au-mesothermal). Metallogeny and plate tectonics (Wilson Alpine cycle) in general, in Dinarides.
