This volume presents a selection of papers resulting from the INTAS Project 93-1783 “Ore-bearing granites of Eurasia: Anatomy and mag-matic-hydrothermal mechanisms of ore deposition” (INTAS = International Association for the Promotion of Cooperation with Scientists from the New Independent States of the Former Soviet Union). It is the second monograph from this project, after our 1996 publication of “Granite-Related Ore Deposits of Central Kazakhstan and Adjacent Areas” (Shatov et al, 1996). The monograph contains 19 contributions of which 14 papers provide regional overviews on a number of important granite and ore provinces (northern and central Kazakhstan, Urals, Mongolia, Caucasus, Siberia, Yakutia, Pamirs). Five other papers are on general aspects of granite magmatism (geophysics, metasomatic zoning, volatile composition, petrogenetic tracing). An introductory paper compiles hitherto unavailable data on ore resources, mining production, uses, and applications for more than one hundred major granite-related rare-metal ore deposits of the former Soviet Union. Figure 1 illustrates the location of those areas treated in this volume. There are a number of significant rare-metal granite areas which are not covered by review papers. These gaps result from the fact that our INTAS project cooperation could only reach a limited number of FSU research groups, and that several papers submitted could not be accepted for publication. This volume provides a first and hitherto unavailable overview of the geology and metallogeny of major granite-related rare-metal deposits of Russia and adjacent countries. The papers may be used as astarting point for those interested in a particular area. The publication will be useful to the mineral exploration and mining community, and to all geoscientists interested in granite-related metallogeny.
