  • Product Description

The late Archean-Paleoproterozoic Sonakhan schist belt occurs within the Raipur District of Chhattisgarh and forms north-eastern part of the Central Indian Craton (CIC)/ Bastar block of Central India.The NW-SE trending Sonakhan schist belt forms a broad synformal basin with steep dipping NNW-SSE trending axial surfaces.The volcano-sedimentary associations in this area contain a complete greenstone sequence consisting of mafic volcanic rocks, felsic volcanic rocks, Banded Iron Formation (BIF).Gold mineralization is associated with volcano-sedimentary sequence in the form of auriferous veins (quartz ± sulfide ± carbonate veins within mafic, felsic volcanic rocks and within sulfide facies BIF).The gold mineralization exhibits both lithological and structural controls.Geochemically, the volcanic rocks of Sonakhan belt behave like a single coherent group with low HFSE contents (Nb, Zr, Hf, etc) and exhibit the characteristics of back-arc basin tectonic environment.The hydrothermal alterations in the study area are quite pronounced.The tectonic and fluid evolution model at Sonakhan schist belt favor the Autochthonous type of Geodynamic setting.
