The Field of Orefield Geology

The Division is focusing on researches on geological prospecting and metallogenesis of endogenic metal mineral resources, based on application of orefield structural geology.  It has completed successively more than 100 projects granted by the Key Project of Chinese National Programs for Fundamental Research and Development (973 Program), the National Key Technologies Research and Development Program of China, the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the Science and Technology Ore Prospecting Program of the State Planning Commission, the China Geological Survey, the Directed Fund of the former Ministry of Geology and Resources, and the Special National Program for Depleted Mine Replacement Prospecting.  The Division conducted researches on metallogenic theories and prediction of national urgently-needed mineral resources such as rich iron ore, copper - cobalt ore, gold, iron ore, copper- lead - zinc, potash ore, rare earth and uranium, contributing to the exploration of mineral resources and development of mining industry in China and was awarded one first prize of the State Science and Technology, ten second and twenty eight third prizes of the scientific and technological progress of the Ministry of Geology and Resources.  By far, more than 400 papers and over 20 monographs have been published and 20 PhDs and over 30 Master’s granted.

Currently, the Division is composed of ten employee: 7 research professors, 1 associate research professor, and 2 assistant research professor, of which nine gained Ph.D. degrees and three are awarded Ph.D. advisors.

Scientific and Technologic Strength

Structural analyses on the relationship between the formation and distribution of ore deposits, with the emphasis of the important role of tectonics on diagenesis and mineralization; making prediction on ore body locality through analysis of structural style and their spatial distribution.
