Sedimentary Ore Deposits ~ Mining Geology

Sedimentary deposits are formed through the erosion, transportation, and redeposition of minerals that can survive the rigors of transportation. The most common is silica, which forms a number of materials, including silica sand, sand and gravel, and flint. The precursor is igneous quartz (e.g., in granite), and then the sedimentary deposit may undergo metamorphism and recementing to produce ...
