The Zambian Copperbelt is arguably the most significantly mineralized Neoproterozoic basin on Earth, preserving a truly spectacular scale of mineralization: in excess of 1 × 10 9 t of ore at ∼2.7% copper has been extracted to date, and there are also major cobalt accumulations. The origin of these deposits has been hotly debated for more than six decades, yet the driving

The Luanshya Copper Deposit — Zambia SpringerLink

Still sometimes known by its old name of Roan Antelope, Luanshya was the first deposit to be opened up in modern times, on the famous Central African Copperbelt. Luanshya is an example of the deposits found in this area, remarkable for their great lateral extent and restricted stratigraphic distribution. These deposits contain about 27% of the ...

Re-Os AND U-Pb DATING OF THE VEIN-HOSTED

The Kansanshi copper deposit in the Pan-African Damaran-Lufilian fold belt of northern Zambia consists of high-angle, sheeted quartz-carbonate-sulfide veins with envelopes of disseminated sulfides. These veins cut and replace metamorphosed Katangan sedimentary rocks of Neoproterozoic age.

Geology and ore deposits of the Central African Copperbelt

2007-1-3  Sedimentary copper deposits in the CACB occur in multiple lithologies and stratigraphic positions and vary in type of mineralization and alteration, but share important characteristics. Deposits generally occur within reduced facies rocks above oxidized facies rocks at the lowest redox boundary within the Roan and lower Nguba groups.

The deposit is in Katangan sediments believed to be younger than those of the Katangan and Zambian copper belts, and contains more than 300,000 tons of ore containing 24 percent copper, mainly as supergene malachite and chalcocite. The deposit was discovered by geochemical soil sampling, following up photogeologic interpretation.
