REE redistribution textures in altered fluorapatite: symplectites, veins, and phosphate-silicate-carbonate assemblages from the Nolans Bore P-REE-Th deposit, Northern Territory, Australia
The geochemical behavior and genesis of rare earth element (REE) ores remains poorly understood. In addition, the processes responsible for many features observed in REE ore deposits are not easily determined. Importantly, the distinction between igneous versus post-magmatic genesis, or the nature of the mineralizing and modifying fluids or melts, remains in dispute. Nolans Bore is a P-REE-Th deposit in the Northern Territory, Australia, hosting REE mineralization in fluorapatite and its...[Show more]
