Mercury contaminated sites in Cedral S.L.P. Mexico, Contamination, Stock, Renovation (QUAKBES)

Mercury (Hg) has been extensively used in Mexico since the 16th century for Au and Ag extraction by means of amalgamation...

Metal extraction form geothermal fluids in the Upper Rhine Graben, a new mineral source?

Our societies are going through major energy and technology shifts which deeply change our needs in raw materials In order to meet these needs new alternative metal sources have to be found...


The source of metals in the recent polymetallic sea-floor massive sulfide mineralization at the Kolumbo arc-volcano, Greece

Seafloor massive sulfide (SMS) deposits form on the seafloor from mixing of high temperature hydrothermal fluids with seawater. Modern SMS mineralization represents equivalents of ancient on-land volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposits, which are mined for base metals (Cu, Zn and Pb) and precious metals (Au and Ag)...

Gold-rich mineralisation in Izu Bonin fore-arc at ODP site 786B: evaluation of magmatic input into oceanic crust hydrothermal system

Gold and other metals variably enriched in volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposits are mobilised in the oceanic crust by two main processes: hydrothermal alteration of the oceanic crust’s lower sheeted dykes and exsolution of metal-rich fluids into the hydrothermal system from differentiating magmas.
