Various stages of Sulfide Mineralization in Sargaz Volcanogenic Massive Sulfide Deposit, Northwest Jiroft, Southern Sanandaj-Sirjan
The Sargaz massive sulfide deposit is situated near Jiroft (south-east Kerman), in the southern Sanandaj-Sirjan Zone. The host rocks are Upper Triassic to lower Jurassic(?) pillow basalt. The occurrence of mineralization in basaltic to basaltic andesite, the existence of Jaspilite and Fe-Mn horizons in distal part of the deposit, the occurrence of a stringer zone discordantly under massive ore, the presence of pyrite as the main sulfide mineral, brecciated textures and mineralogical zonation in the massive ore, all suggest that the Sargaz deposit can be classified as a volanogenic massive sulfide deposit. The mineralogy is reasonably simple, with pyrite being the main sulfide mineral, with lesser chalcopyrite and sphalerite. On the basis of different generation of minerals, shape, size, their mutual geometry, relative timing of crosscutting structures and replacement features, brecciated textures and mineralogical zonation indicate that the growth history of the Sargaz deposit was complex due to syn and post depositional processes. Based on mineralogical, textural and paragenetic relationships, four principal stages of mineralization are recognized. Stage I mainly consist of fine grained pyrite (As rich), and locally sphalerite, quartz and barite
