Diamonds and diamond-bearing rocks from Kazakhstan ab 48.99 EURO Geological and petrological criteria of diamond-bearing rocks of the Kokchetav Massif Northern Kazakhstan and Mugodzhary West Kazakhstan
Geoscientists have always had an interest in how diamonds form. However discussions about diamonds origin and their carbon sources are still continue. Many recent studies have shown that carbon isotope data can be helpful in tracing the origin and evolution of diamonds in various geological environments. This book provides results of analyses of diamond-bearing rocks and diamonds from different deposits that have been carried out in order to distinguish the different carbon source for diamonds and their origin. The results should help to confirm the proposal that the source of the carbon in diamonds is the carbonate rocks, minerals and gases which are always present in the rock masses of all known types of diamond deposit. This monograph intended for undergraduate and postgraduate students of mineralogy, petrology and geochemistry and also for research workers in related field.
This Atlas presents geological-genetic models for the key mineral deposit types of Kazakhstan, including deposits of metallic and non-metallic mineral resources (ores, diamonds, and industrial minerals), and fuel and energy resources (hydrocarbons and uranium deposits). The geological models, which were developed by Kazakh geologists, are based on examples from studied deposits and ore fields. They feature detailed geological maps and cross-sections for each of the deposits discussed in this volume. Principles and methodologies used to construct these models utilize complex information in order to predict the parameters and scales of ore/mineral accumulation and the conditions of formation of the mineral resources. Such models permit a focused approach to be used in metallogenetic analysis, prognosis and prospecting of deposits. The Atlas addresses a broad range of specialists of economic geology dealing who study, explore and evaluate such deposits, and will also be of great use to geology students and economic geologist studying their formation.
