Specialists of FSUE TsNIGRI take part in the IX International Congress "Base metals and minerals"

Specialists of FSUE TsNIGRI took part in the IX International Congress and Exhibition "Base metals and minerals" (September 11-15, 2017, Krasnoyarsk). 750 experts of 174 companies from 24 countries took part in the Congress and Exhibition. The official opening of the Congress was preceded by a course of introductory lectures by top scientists from Russia, Switzerland, Great Britain, New Zealand, China, the USA, Norway and the UAE. The Congress included industry conferences: "Aluminum of Siberia", "Metallurgy of base, rare and precious metals", "Gold of Siberia".

As part of "Gold of Siberia" conference, focused on base and precious metals mineral base, two presentations by FSUE TsNIGRI experts were made.

Presentation by R.H. Mansurov, senior researcher of FSUE TsNIGRI, "Prospects for new large-tonnage gold deposit discovery in carbonaceous-carbonate-terrigenous complexes of the Siberian platform". Gold-sulfide-quartz and gold-sulfide deposits hosted by carbonaceous-carbonate-terrigenous complexes are most prospective for large-tonnage gold mineralization discovery. Within the Russian Federation, such large-tonnage deposits include Olympiadninskoye, Blagodatnoye, Veduginskoye (Yenisei gold province), Sukhoi Log, Verninskoye (Baikal-Patom province), Natalkinskoye, Degdekan (Verkhoyansk-Kolyma province). All of them are confined to orogenic miogeosyncline structures in the folded framing of the Siberian platform.

Presentation by D.A. Korchagina, FSUE TsNIGRI researcher, "Siberian polymetallic deposit mineral base". It highlighted lead and zinc mineral base status and structure; data on base metal reserve changes and production; the area’s resource potential characterization. Rudny Altai, Trans-Baikal region, Yenisei ridge and Salair are the most prospective Russian regions for lead and zinc mineral base buildup. Based on ore field and deposit localization and formation conditions, prospective exploration sites are identified.
