Classic papers in Economic Geology: Fallick et al. (2001) – Bacteria were responsible for the magnitude of the world-class hydrothermal base metal base metal sulfide deposit at Navan, Ireland

Irish-type zinc-lead deposits represent a distinctive sub-class of the carbonate-hosted zinc-lead deposit family, having geological features and genetic models that are hybrids between sedimentary exhalative (SEDEX; also known as clastic zinc-lead deposits) and Mississippi Valley-type (MVT) deposits.  They are important … Continue reading

Classic Papers in Economic Geology: Hekinian et al. (1980) – the first description of seafloor massive sulfide deposits

This is my first post in the classic papers series.  I have a passion for volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposits, so I thought it would be fun to write a short blog on a classic paper that described and documented … Continue reading
