  Ore Deposits and


The ultimate source of ore deposits is deep in the igneous rocks in the earth. The original concentration takes place within bodies of magma through a process called differentiation. The concentration of some simple high temperature oxide minerals occurs within the liquid magma itself. The vast majority of minerals, however, are deposited in the surrounding rocks from the cooling liquid by replacement of wall rock and by the filling of the cavities.


The cause of molten areas, or magma, is not fully known. It is probable that several factors work together to form them. Radioactivity is an important contributor to the heat since it has been shown that igneous rocks in general are higher in content of radioactive minerals than are other rocks.
