Studies of sulphide mineralogy of north Pennine ores and its contribution to genetic models

Abstract

Detailed studies of the mineral associations, compositions and parageneses of the sulphide ores of the north Pennines were undertaken by use of reflected-light microscopy and electron-probe microanalysis. These data are considered in terms of the conditions of formation of the assemblages and suggest higher temperatures of formation and more diverse fluid compositions in the orefield to the north of the Stainmore syncline than in comparable areas to the south.
