Metallogeny of Mankhamba Block in Subpolar Urals

For the first time ever, based on the rock formation and metallogeny map, as well as the authorial territorial legends, the geological structure, geodynamic behavior and metallogenic peculiarities of differently aged rock associations are shown. Mankhamba Block occurs in the Turupya–Mankhamba uranium–rare metal province and is included in the Lyapin minerageny zone. It is a component of the West Ural Megazone of the Urals Minerageny Province. History of the Block contains four metallogenic periods: pre-Riphean, Riphean–Cambrian, Paleozoic and Mesozoic–Cenozoic ages specializing in uranium, thorium, iron, rare and nonferrous metals, and gold largely occurring in the Turman deposit (U, Th, TR, Au, Pt), Turupya deposit (Ta, Nb, TR, U, Th, Bi), МАН-9 (Fe, TR) and others. The results imply that, alongside with the defined metal specialization of the metallogenic periods, a significant influence is exerted on the ore content in the test territory by the activated suture zones identified during the research. At junctions of the sutures and deep transverse structures, the largest ore bodies are localized, including stratiform deposits and nonconventional structurally and stratigraphically discordant objects.

Keywords: metallogeny, Mankhamba Block, rock formation, period, suture zone, deposits, mineralization.
