Qinghai Institute of Geological Survey has discovered rare and rare earth mineralized alkaline complex in Dagele area in the middle part of East Kunlun For the first time, according to relevant sources on October 27.Experts said the discovery has greatly expanded the prospecting space for rare and rare earth minerals on the Tibetan Plateau, providing important enlightenment for the discovery of new and high-quality rare and rare earth minerals, and has important prospecting and strategic significance.The results have been published online in geotectonics and Metallogeny by Guangzhou Institute of Geochemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences.According to the above published articles, the NB-Ta, P-REE mineralized alkaline complex was first discovered by Qinghai Geological Survey Institute in Dagele area in the middle part of East Kunlun, and a Nb, P-mineralization body was delineated in the preliminary mineral exploration. Ta and REE REE were also accompanied by mineralization, showing great metallogenic potential.According to the above article, this discovery is a new rare and rare earth ore prospecting direction besides the hard rock Type Li-be deposit in the northern Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. With the further development of mineral exploration, it is expected to become a new and high-quality rare and rare earth mineral resource base.According to the above article, the authors have carried out a systematic study on the rock assemblage, petrological characteristics and ore bearing of alkaline complex in Dagele area, and made a comparative analysis with rare and rare earth deposits related to typical alkaline rock in China. These studies will be helpful to further understand the alkaline complex in east Kunlun area.The basic characteristics of rare and rare earth deposits of carbonate rock type reveal the law of super-normal enrichment of rare and rare rare elements, and have great significance for strategic mineral prospecting.It is reported that the above research was jointly funded by the qinghai Geological Survey Project, the second Qinghai-Tibet Plateau comprehensive scientific investigation and research project, qinghai Bureau of Geology and Mineral Exploration and Development project, by the Qinghai Geological Survey institute li Wufu, Wang Tao, Wang Bingzhang and other experts to carry out.Source: Chinanews.com
