OBS

L'expression «milieu métallogénique» se réfère à une séquence de processus géologiques interreliés qui ont entraîné la concentration d'éléments et de minéraux dans des gîtes d'importance, tant par la nature que par la taille, au sein d'un domaine géologique. Ces processus géologiques sont intimement associés aux entités sédimentaires, ignées, métamorphiques ou structurales qui caractérisent ce domaine géologique. Plusieurs types de gîtes minéraux peuvent se former au sein d'un seul milieu métallogénique (Gross, 1977).

PHR
