Identification of structural mineralisation trends during geological targeting and search for deposits

The structural trend of mineralization is a linear accumulation of deposits and manifestations of ore mineralization, as well as accompanying metasomatites and geochemical anomalies.
Mineralization trends are controlled by fractures and zones of fracturing, can be marked by small intrusive bodies, are often expressed in geophysical fields and are reflected by “ore” multispectral anomalies and thickening of lineaments on satellite images.
Ore-controlling structures could have formed at different stages of deformation in different kinematic settings.
Structural trends of mineralization are of different scales; regional trends are often transstructural - they cross regional faults, various geological zones and terranes.
Identification of structural mineralization trends is an important component of geological targeting, forecasting and prospecting for ore deposits.
Structural mineralization trends are exploration corridors within which the discovery of new deposits is most likely.
