  • Quartz often occurs in drawn-out grains to such an extent that a particular form called quartz schist is produced. (princeton.edu)
  • In fact, we did not observe any evidence of shock metamorphism, such as planar deformation features in the quartz grains of the collected samples, and the previously reported "shatter cones" are wind-erosion features in sandstones (ventifacts). (wiley.com)
  • They claimed that this hypothesis was supported by the occurrence of impact breccias at the craters' bottom, the existence of shatter cones (pointing toward the center of the craters), and the presence of microscopic planar deformation features (PDFs) found in some quartz grains of outcropping sandstones.

  • The Guayabito deposit is an en-echelon style deposit, comprising zones with a strike length of 180m, depth of 300m and thickness of up to 5m. (mining-technology.com)
  • includes stratiform and tabular orebodies, vertical pipes, narrow lenses, and irregular ore zones that are controlled by intrusive contacts. (gov.bc.ca)
  • The results suggest that modest to low grade gold and copper mineralized zones occur over variable widths, with the strongest grades related to north-south trending structural zones and contacts between several intrusive phases or intrusive volcanic contacts. (stockguru.com)
  • As a result, intrusive magmas cool very slowly, perhaps requiring tens of thousands of years, and crystals have the time to grow relatively large. (jsu.edu)
