The Apatite-Magnetite Deposits (IOCG's) of the Bafq district, Central Iran

Major (2 Gt) sulfide-poor, Fe oxide-apatite-REE deposits and transitional apatite-REE rich rocks (IOCG) occur in the structurally controlled metallogenic province of Bafq in Central Iran. The mineralization is associated with large scale bimodal volcanism of Lower Cambrian age where a distal alkali metasomatism, and a proximal alteration commonly consisting of Fe oxide-apatite-REE-pyroxene/actinolite/chlorite-garnet-calcite-quartz have developed. During a 3 day field trip we will look at selected active mines and deposits. This field trip is planned to be conducted in cooperation with the Geological Survey of Iran
