Comparison of the Daluxiang and Maoniuping carbonatitic REE deposits with Bayan Obo REE deposit, China

Xu, Cheng; Campbell, Ian; Kynicky, Jindrich; Allen, Charlotte M; Chen, Yanjing; Huang, Zhilong; Qi , Liang


Although carbonatites potentially contain a larger concentration of rare earth elements (REEs) than any rock type, the origin of the REE mineralization in the world's largest Bayan Obo carbonatite-related deposit is still disputed. In order to clarify the mechanism of REE mineralization, carbonatite samples from three large REE deposits in China, Daluxiang, Maoniuping and Bayan Obo were compared. The REE minerals in Daluxiang and Maoniuping carbonatites show constant light REE (LREE) enrichment...[Show more]
