Source of metals in ultramafic-hosted VMS deposits: insight from the Troodos ophiolite and ODP Hole 735B

Clifford Patten , Malte Junge & Alexandre Peillod
Volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposits associated with mafic-ultramafic rocks show strong structural control and are located at or in the vicinity of low angle detachment faults such as oceanic core complexes (OCC) in mid-ocean ridge environments. These ultramafic VMS deposits are variably enriched in precious (Au-Ag) critical (Co) and the base metals Cu, Zn, and Ni but the source of the metals remains poorly known. The Troodos ophiolite, Cyprus, and the ODP Hole 735B on...
