Fields of carbon metasomatism - indicator of ore deposits
Carbonic metasomatites are very interesting subjects in recent years. The carbonic metasomatites were discovered in ore regions of Central Asia and then in Siberia and other regions of Russian Federation. By the present, the carbonic metasomatite have been discovered in ore regions with various hydrothermal mineralization. The carbonic metasomatites are characterized by black color and fine-grained structures. The carbonic metasomatite contains graphite. Graphite is associated with ilmenite, rutile, sulfides of endogenous origin. The carbonic metasomatite contains increased amounts of metals such as V, Ti, Co, Cu, Zn, Pb, Sn, As, W, Au, Re, Ag, Re, Se, and others. Therefore, the somatites are indicators of ore fields.
