Among the ore deposits located in the Palaeozoic-Triassic formations of the Dinarides, siderite (± ankerite) and barite mineralization hosted by Carboniferous and Lower Permian sediments as well as polymetallic deposits in the Mid-Bosnian Schist Mts (MB), caused a long standing dispute concerning their metallogenic affiliation.

As an outcome of the European Science Foundation scientific programme, GEODE, on geodynamics and ore deposit evolution, this book examines the underlying geodynamic processes that lead to the formation of ore deposits in order to discover what controls the timing and location of major ore deposits in an evolving orogen.
A collection of 19 research papers examines various aspects of ore genesis in the context of the geodynamic processes occurring within an evolving orogen. Although the majority of papers relate to Europe, their findings have a global significance for metallogenesis.
The book will be of interest to all those involved in research or mineral exploration concerned with metallogenesis. In addition, ore deposits provide new evidence about magmatism associated with transient, rapid changes in plate motions and subduction processes in unusual tectonic settings, and are therefore of interest to those involved in both the magmatic and tectonic processes of orogenesis.
