process of formation of iron ore

Processes of Ore Formation - geol-amu.org

Processes of Ore Formation. Current theories of the genesis of ore deposit can be divided into internal (endogene) and external (exogene) or surface processes. It must be understood that more than one mechanism may be responsible for the formation of an ore body. Example - stockwork porphyry copper deposit at depth (epigenetic) with a syngenetic ...
