Abstract: Based on the systematic discussion and comparison with two kinds of expression forms of metallogenic series, the authors consider that to illuminate the relationship between metallogenic series and geological formation can help to link the metallogenic series theory with the studies of metallogenic background, and to be convenient for applying this theory in mineral deposit prediction and prospecting deployment. In accordance with the forming time, the metallogenic series related to the geological formation can be divided into 4 types: syngenetic metallogenic series, pene-contemporaneous metallogenic series, epigenetic metallogenic series, and superficial weathering metallogenic series. In this paper, the authors give some common examples for every metallogenic series, and hope bringing geologists a reference.
Keywords: syngenetic metallogenic series pene-contemporaneous metallogenic series epigenetic metallogenic series superficial weathering metallogenic series
