Iron-rich veins related to structural lineaments, and the search for base metals in Israel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Iron-rich veins are associated with tectonic features in Israel and adjacent lands. These iron-bearing veins within otherwise metal-poor sedimentary rocks are commonly accompanied by significant enrichments of other metals such as Mo, Zn, As, V, Ni, Mn, Pb and U. Restriction of these mineralized veins to well delineated tectonic zones suggests the need for re-evaluation of the mineral resource potential of the area. A conceptual geochemical model to guide exploration is provided.
