Abstract

The Mascot-Jefferson City zinc district is the most important of the carbonate-hosted, Mississippi Valley-type (MVT) Zn ± Pb districts in eastern Tennessee, all of which are located in the Appalachian Valley and Ridge physiographic province (Fig. 3). Another producing zinc district in Tennessee, also of the Mississippi Valley-type and with many characteristics similar to those of the M-J district, is the Central Tennessee zinc district (Elmwood-Gordonsville mines) located along the crest of the Nashville Dome, a southwestward continuation of the Algonquin-Cincinnati Arch system. Plans are also under way to resume production in the Idol mine of the Copper Ridge district, which has been inactive since 1981.
