[PDF] Geological setting of iron oxide-apatite deposits

The objective of this research is to determine all processes in the magmatic evolution and related hydrothermal activities that created the volcanic rocks and associated ore-forming systems of the Bafq ‎mining district. Several iron oxide-apatite (IOA) deposits were investigated in this area with a focus on the Sechahun ore deposit. The Bafq ‎mining district is well known for hosting

The iron and steel industry has often been described as the "backbone' of industrialization and the 'bedrock' of the economy of nations. Such words of encomium can be attributed to the fact that, iron and steel products are used in

Geology, Prospecting and Exploration for Iron Ore

The airborne magnetometer is the primary geological tool used in the search for iron ores and iron bearing materials in large areas. The method of conducting an airborne magnetic survey is to install a flux gate or proton precision magnetometer in an airplane which traverses the target area at a fixed altitude and along predetermined flight lines.

Geological Setting In the pre-Cretaceous times, Nigeria consists of uplifted continental landmass made up of pre-Cambrian basement rocks which are now uncomfortably overlain by Cretaceous sediments in the basinal area (Kogbe, 1975).

Mineral deposit Iron deposits Britannica

Mineral deposit Mineral deposit Iron deposits: By far the most important metal from an economic and technical point of view is iron. Sedimentary iron deposits, from which almost all iron is obtained, can therefore be viewed as one of the world’s great mineral treasures. There are two major types of deposit. The first, and by far the most important, is banded iron formations (BIFs), so
