Trace element and isotopic zonation in vein calcite from the Mendip Hills, UK, with spatial-process correlation analysis

Abstract:

High-resolution Scanning Proton Microprobe (SPM) analyses of fissure filling calcite (from the Mendip Hills, UK) show fine-scale chemical zonation patterns in Fe and Mn concentrations from fissure centre to wall. These fluctuations are sharp and steep (peaks of 0.01-0.1 mm width), with concentrations changing by as much as 8000 ppm. Zonation in Pb and Zn is similar to that obtained for Mn and Fe, and maxima in the concentrations of these two elements are correlated with maxima in Mn concentra...
