Title of the
Session 12b (under SGA & IAGOD-CODMUR): Processes and Deposits of Ultramafic-Mafic Magmas Through Space and Time
Details of the Session 12b: Production and use of magmatic ores such as Ni-Cu sulfides, platinum-group elements (PGEs), chromite and Ti-V-bearing magnetite is one of the most dynamic and effective branches of world economy. Magmatic ore deposits are formed from ultramafic-mafic magmas due to high temperature crystallization processes and directly linked to the evolution of the parental magmas through space and time. The ore forming processes under magmatic system have two end members: (i) concentration of ore minerals as a direct consequence of magmatic crystallization dominated by silicate melt-crystal equilibria and (ii) (magmatic) hydrothermal processes where concentration of ore minerals are from magmatic hydrothermal fluids by crystallization dominated by crystal-volatile equilibria. This particular session will seek to understand the fundamental processes which control the formation of the deposits of the ultramafic-mafic magmas covering chromite, PGE, Ni-sulfides, Ti-V-bearing magnetite through space and time. In addition, this session will contribute in understanding the recent development in the fields of magmatic ore deposits as a whole.
