Epigenetic manganese mineralization occurs within Cretaceous carbonate strata of Israel. This mineralization is structurally controlled. In southern Israel, manganese- and iron-bearing waters rising along fault zones precipitated these metals as different redox conditions were encountered. The manganese and associated trace-metals are believed to be leached from magmatic bodies by corrosive deep-seated brines in southern Israel and circulating meteoric waters in northern Israel.
