We have evaluated the temporal distribution of Mississippi Valley-type (MVT) Zn-Pb deposits with special attention to the nature and number of deposits of Precambrian age. Our evaluation is based on the widely used model for MVT mineralization involving metal-bearing brines that lack reduced S and that deposit sulfides only where they encounter a reservoir of sulfide or where sulfate in the metal-bearing brine is reduced to sulfide. For MVT systems of this type, basins with abundant sulfate would be most favorable for development of MVT mineralization because these would allow transport of metals in sulfate-rich brines and deposition of metals...
