Mineral Deposits o[Northeast Queensland: Excursion Guide Foreword and acknowledgements Simon D. Beams Terra Search Pty Ltd, P.O. Box , Hyde Park, Townsville, Qld The Northeast Queensland excursions associated with the 17th International Geochemical Exploration. RESEARCH INTERESTS. Deposit types: Skarn (including CRD), porphyry, epithermal, Sn-W, IOCG, orogenic Au; Ore forming processes; vectors/zoning patterns, discriminators and indicators that can be directly used in exploration; distal signatures of mineralization. Alabama comprises two geological regions. The northeast section is mountainous, constituting the southern end of the Cumberland Plateau and climaxing in 2, ft. Cheaha Mt. This crystalline or mineral region is composed primarily of metamorphosed Paleozoic rocks which are exposed and commercially mined in Chambers, Clay, Cleburne, Coosa. Mineral Deposits of Finland is the only up-to-date and inclusive reference available that fully captures the scope of Finland’s mineral deposits and their economic potential. Finland hosts Europe’s most mature rocks and large cratonic blocks, analogous to western Australia and Southern Africa, which are the most mineralized terrains on Earth.

The Golden Plateau low sulphidation, epithermal gold deposits are located near the town of Cracow and are hosted by the Permian Camboon Andesites of the Camboon Volcanic Arc, km north-west of Brisbane, in south-eastern Queensland, Australia. The gold deposits of the Cracow district are localised within andesitic lavas, tuffs and coarse fragmentals of the NNW striking and roughly 25°W.   INTRODUCTION The Lady Loretta Zn-Pb-Ag deposit is one of the major recent massive sulphide discoveries in Australia. It is located in northwest Queensland at latitude 'S, longitude 'S, km north-northwest of Mount Isa and 2 km east of the old Lady Annie copper mine. The fourth major Australian porphyry-epithermal province is the Drummond Basin in northeast Queensland, which contains several adularia-sericite Au-Ag deposits, the most important of which is Pajingo-Vera-Nancy (global resources of t Au and t Ag: Richards et al., ). Queensland, ), in which 15 domains are recognised. Rocks of the Mount Isa Province have been overprinted by regional metasomatism to an extraordinary degree. The inlier is host to globally significant base metal deposits (Geological Survey of Queensland, ), with some 11% of the world’s Pb and Zn resources (Wallis & others, ).
