The Shimensi tungsten polymetallic deposit, situated in the Dahutang ore field, South China, is one of the largest tungsten deposits in the world, with an estimated WO3 reserve of 0.74 million tons. Coarse-grained porphyritic biotite granite (CPBG), fine-grained porphyritic biotite granite (FPBG), fine-grained biotite granite (FBG) and biotite granite porphyry (BGP) are all ore-related, but their diagenetic relationships and contributions to W-Cu-Mo mineralization are still in dispute....[Show more]
