Abstract

'A metallogenic province is the entity of mineral deposits that formed during a tectonic-metallogenic epoch within a major tectonic unit and which are characterized by related mineral composition, form of the deposits, and intensity of mineralization.' The concept of a metallogenic province is reviewed in terms of the following topics: regional-tectonic types of ore-bearing provinces; evolution of provinces in time; composition of ores characterizing the provinces; the form of ore deposits in individual provinces; density of mineralization.
