The Paleozoic plate boundary zone between Laurussia and Gondwana in western Pangea hosts major magmatic and hydrothermal Sn-W-Ta, Au, and U mineralization. Individual mineral deposits represent the results of the superposition of a series of exogenic and endogenic processes. Exogenic processes controlled (1) the enrichment of the ore elements in sedimentary protoliths via residual enrichment during intense chemical weathering and via climatically or tectonically controlled redox traps, (2) the spatial distribution of fertile protoliths, and, thus, eventually (3) the spatial distribution of mineralization. Endogenic processes resulting in metamorphism and crustal melting controlled the mobilization of Sn-W, Au, and U...
