  • An IN SITU Kinetic Study of the Dehydration of Brucite Using Synchrotron
           X-ray Powder Diffraction
    • Authors: Liu C; Zhang R, Shen K, et al.
      Abstract: The dehydration kinetics of brucite were studied in situ by synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD) in the temperature range 320–370 °C. The sequence of XRD spectra clearly reveals that the phase transformation of brucite into periclase occurs with increasing temperature up to 600 °C under ambient pressure. Our results show that there is a positive temperature dependence of the reaction rate k. Elevated temperatures will be conducive to the dehydration process. The obtained n values suggest that the reaction mechanism is a one-dimensional diffusion of the water molecules with an instantaneous nucleation. The influence of temperature on the reaction rate is well described by the Arrhenius equation, which yields an apparent activation energy Ea of 386 ± 12 kJ/mol and frequency factor A of 1.14 × 1029 s–1. The activation energy is influenced by factors such as grain size, shape, temperature, gas atmosphere, and surrounding water.

  • Origin and Evolution of Oscillatory Zoned Garnet from Kasva Skarn,
           Northeast Tafresh, Iran
    • Authors: Mirnejad H; Hasannejad M, Miller N, et al.
      Abstract: Within the central Urumieh-Dokhtar Magmatic Belt of northern Iran, the Kasva skarn deposit (KSD) formed by metasomatic alteration of Eocene intercalated carbonate and volcaniclastic sediments in response to Oligo-Miocene intrusion by granitoid porphyries. The KSD contains abundant oscillatory-zoned garnet crystals, which are characterized by isotropic cores of nearly pure andradite that are rimmed by anisotropic grossular–andradite (grandite). The Fe-rich andraditic cores are enriched in U and LREE, with positive Eu anomalies, whereas the Al-rich granditic rims are enriched in Ti, Nb, Zr, Hf, and HREE, without Eu anomalies. Variation in optical and chemical features in Fe- and Al-rich garnet are controlled by external factors such as (1) infiltration of compositionally distinct fluids, (2) incorporation of LREE and U at the {X} site in association with substitution of Fe3+ for Al3+ at [Y] within the crystal structure of andraditic garnet, and (3) substitution of Ti and HFSE for Al in granditic garnet.

      Abstract: Zircophyllite is redefined as an astrophyllite-group mineral, ideally K2NaFe2+7Zr2(Si4O12)2O2(OH)4F (Fe2+-dominant at C7) (IMA 17-D). Zircophyllite was previously considered to be a kupletskite-group mineral of the astrophyllite supergroup (Mn2+-dominant at C7), with ideal formula K2NaMn7Zr2(Si4O12)2O2(OH)4F (IMA 15-B). The latter formula is not in agreement with that reported in the original description of zircophyllite.

  • Application of La-icp-ms Sulfide Analysis and Methodology For Deciphering
           Elemental Paragenesis and Associations in Addition To Multi-stage
           Processes in Metamorphic Gold Settings
    • Authors: Gourcerol B; Kontak DJ, Thurston PC, et al.
      Abstract: Quantitative laser ablation inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) element distribution analysis represents a relatively new and powerful approach to assess gold mineralizing processes. Although there is a trend towards imaging in LA-ICP-MS, this article demonstrates that the compilation of the individual time-slice datasets (TSD) from LA analyses provides greater potential to explore and better understand ore systems. Based on several analyses of gold-bearing sulfides from a variety of lode gold mineralized settings, this study introduces new diagrams and geostatistical techniques as recommended procedures to be applied to any gold deposit environment to better understand its genesis, with possible exploration implications. The nature of the mineralizing fluid is investigated by studying Ni and Co variations in the sulfide grains in environments ranging from ultramafic to felsic, whereas upgrading of gold tenor within an ore deposit is identified using Au versus Ag plots grouped by element association and elemental geochemical affinity. Furthermore, the textural transformation and coupled dissolution/precipitation (CDP) in pyrite is documented using Ag versus Ni plots with associated defined fields (i.e., diagenetic versus metamorphic). Lastly, standard geostatistical tests are used to assess element associations through agglomerative hierarchical clustering and exploratory statistical methods. Meanwhile, a multidimensional scaling approach can evaluate the geochemical affinity of the mineralizing fluids.

  • Characterization of Fibrous Cryptomelane from the Todorokite-cryptomelane
           Mineral Assemblage At the Sebilo Mine, Northern Cape Province, South
    • Authors: Vafeas N; Viljoen KS, Blignaut L.
      Abstract: A 30-cm hand sample was obtained from the lowermost manganese ore bed, directly below the Kalahari unconformity within the supergene zone, at the Sebilo manganese mine in the Kalahari Manganese Field, Northern Cape Province, South Africa. The sample comprises an intergrowth of rare supergene fibrous cryptomelane and todorokite, as well as traces of pre-supergene manganese oxides. A chemical analysis of hausmannite concretions within remnant diagenetic manganese ore fragments in the supergene mineral assemblage shows leaching of pre-existing carbonate and silicate compounds from the primary diagenetic ore (Kleyenstüber 1984, 1985, Chetty 2008, Vafeas 2016) via descending meteoric fluids along the Kalahari unconformity. This resulted in the initial development of todorokite, forming the bulk of the matrix, and the coeval development of early-stage calcite within the todorokite pores. Subsequent to this, late-stage calcite precipitated from descending Ca-bearing supergene fluids and is seen to superimpose the todorokite matrix. Growth of the supergene mineral assemblage ended with the formation of rare medium- and coarse-grained acicular cryptomelane crystals that are orientated perpendicular to the host fracture surface.

  • Investigation of the Structural Stability of Zippeite-group Minerals Using
           High-temperature Calorimetry
    • Authors: Sharifironizi M; Burns PC.
      Abstract: Accurate thermodynamic data for uranyl minerals are needed to understand their role in uranium deposit formation and subsequent alteration, transport of uranium in contaminated subsurface environments, and for predicting the performance of a geological repository for nuclear waste. Three members of the uranyl sulfate zippeite group, natrozippeite, cobaltzippeite, and zinczippeite, were synthesized and characterized prior to determination of their standard state enthalpies of formation from binary oxides and from elements using high-temperature drop-solution calorimetry. Calculated standard-state enthalpies of formation from the elements, ΔHf°, at 298 K, were found to be –18015.84 ± 28.76, –4362.09 ± 10.44, and –4698.22 ± 13.68 kJ/mol for natrozippeite (Na5[(UO2)8(SO4)4O5(OH)3]•12H2O), cobaltzippeite (Co[(UO2)2(SO4)O2]•3.7H2O), and zinczippeite (Zn[(UO2)2(SO4)O2]•4.1H2O), respectively. Current results, together with the standard-state enthalpy of formation value for zippeite (containing K) reported earlier, allows investigation of the role of acid-base interactions between the structural unit and interstitial complexes relative to the enthalpy of formation of zippeite-group minerals. There is a positive linear relationship between the formation enthalpies from oxides and the acidity of cation oxides. There is also a linear correlation between the ionic radius of charge-balancing alkali cations and the enthalpy of formation of the studied compounds from their binary oxides, indicating the importance of the nature and coordination environment of the interstitial complex in determining the thermodynamic properties of these minerals.

  • The Crystal-chemistry of Ni-bearing Spinel-group Minerals: Chemical,
           Geological, and Exploration Implications
    • Authors: Beckett-Brown CE; McDonald AM.
      Abstract: Spinels with Ni contents ranging from 196 ppm to 12.85 wt.%, obtained from intermediate-mafic to ultramafic environments (Morokweng crater and Bon Accord, South Africa; Puddy Lake, Ontario, Canada), have been studied using textural observations and in situ chemical analyses (e.g., energy and wavelength dispersive spectroscopy as well as laser-ablation inductively-coupled mass-spectrometry) to document and highlight the significance of Ni incorporation into spinel-group minerals. Those from the Puddy Lake ultramafic intrusion have the lowest Ni concentrations, ranging from 196 to 7880 ppm (avg. = 3326, n = 37). They develop in heavily serpentinized areas of the intrusion as isolated, optically zoned subhedral to anhedral crystals up to 1 mm in diameter. Chemically, they range from Ni-bearing chromite to Ni-bearing magnetite with an average composition of (based on 4 anions): (Fe2+0.80Mg2+0.13Mn2+0.05Ni2+0.02Zn2+0.01)Σ1.01(Cr3+1.28Fe3+0.38Al3+0.32Ti0.01)Σ1.99O4 and (Fe2+0.88Mg2+0.08Ni2+0.02Mn2+0.01Zn2+0.01)Σ1.00(Fe3+1.84Cr3+0.16)Σ2.00O4, respectively. Spinels from the quartz-norite melt sheet of the Morokweng impact crater have intermediate Ni concentrations ranging from 0.41 to 7.29 wt.% (avg. = 5.00, n = 81). They develop as anhedral rounded grains (∼25 μm in diameter) that surround disseminated sulfide patches (∼5 cm in diameter), the latter composed of millerite, siegenite, and chalcopyrite. Chemically, these spinels are Ni-bearing (<5.00 wt.% Ni) to Ni-rich (<12.52–5.00 wt.% Ni) magnetite, with an average composition of (Fe2+0.77Ni2+0.23)Σ1.00(Fe3+2.00)Σ2.00O4. Spinel from the Bon Accord ultramafic hosted nickel-oxide showing contain the highest Ni concentrations, ranging from 10.19 to 12.85 wt.% (avg. = 11.54, n = 50). They form as solitary subhedral grains (∼50 to 100 μm in diameter) or as aggregates of multiple grains (ranging from 0.5 to 1.0 cm), some containing inclusions of Ni-rich silicates (e.g., willemseite) and sulfides (e.g., millerite). Chemically, they are compositionally intermediate between magnetite and trevorite, with an average composition of (Fe2+0.54Ni2+0.46)Σ1.00(Fe3+1.99)Σ1.99O4. Nickel incorporation in spinel-group minerals appears to be process dependent, with no universal control on its incorporation. In general, the greatest Ni enrichment is observed in inverse spinel-group minerals (i.e., magnetite) due to site-preference energy constraints.

  • The Ericssonite Group of Fe 3+ Disilicate Minerals
    • Authors: Sokolova E; Hawthorne FC, CÁmara F, et al.
      Abstract: The ericssonite group contains two Fe3+ disilicates with the ericssonite structure-type arrangement: ericssonite, BaMn2Fe3+(Si2O7)O(OH), and ferroericssonite, BaFe2+2Fe3+(Si2O7)O(OH) (Memorandum 78-SM/17). Ericssonite has two polytypes, of monoclinic symmetry and orthorhombic symmetry. The crystal chemistry of the ericssonite-group minerals and bafertisite- and lamprophyllite-group minerals (seidozerite supergroup) is compared. Ericssonite and ferroericssonite do not contain the combination of features that would allow them to belong to any group of the seidozerite supergroup and hence require a completely separate group.
