The continental crust-contributes to magmatic hydrothermal gold deposit in Ciemas, West Java, Indonesia: Constraints from. Hf isotopes of zircons and in situ Pb isotopes of sulfide's TEXT SIZE: A A A
Multiple periods of arc magmatism induced by the subduction of the Indian-Australian Plate northward developed on Java Island, and multistage porphyry-epithermal metallogenic systems occurred within the Late Eocene-Early Miocene and the Late Miocene-Early Pleistocene magmatic belts. These porphyry-epithermal metallogenic systems have obvious spatial variations. In West Java, there are large populations of low-sulfidation type epithermal deposits, while East Java and its east are characterized by the occurrences of porphyry deposits. However, the newly discovered Ciemas deposit in West Java, a Middle Miocene (similar to 17 Ma) porphyry-epithermal Au deposit, provides an opportunity for further understanding the porphyry-epithermal mineralization in Java. To elucidate the controlling factors of porphyry-epithermal mineralization in West Java, we analyzed the Hf isotopies of zircons from the igneous rocks and in situ Pb isotopes of sulfides (galena, pyrite, arsenopyrite) in the Ciemas deposit. The results show that the zircons epsilon(Hf)(t) of igneous rocks are uniform with an average value of -11.5 +/- 0.39, and the peak value of T-DM2 is 1500-1650 Ma, suggesting the Middle Miocene arc magmatism in Ciemas suffered intense crustal contamination. The Pb isotopic compositions of sulfides are very uniform and have high amounts of radiogenic lead. The mean ratios of (206)pb/(204)pb, (207)pb/(204)pb and Pb-208/Pb-204 are 39.343 +/- 0.059, 15.73 +/- 0.015 and 18.854 +/- 0.025, respectively, indicating that the mineralization materials of the Ciemas gold deposit mainly originated from ancient continental crust. The multistage arc magmatism induced by the subduction of the Indian-Australian Plate northward beneath Java Island control the porphyry and epithermal mineralization in Java. The Middle Miocene arc magmatism in Ciemas contamina
