On the Marija Reka mercury deposit and on its comparison with the Litija and Idrija deposits from the aspect of plate tectonics
AbstractThe surroundings of the Marija Reka deposit were studied in detail, and on the basis of literature data its geologic structure was reconstructed. The chemical elements Ni and Hg are correlated, and therefore comparisons were made with the deposits in Sava folds in which also mercury occurs. Positive correlation was established between the intensity of extension of the Earth’s crust, occurrence of basic volcanics, and nickel and native mercury. Results indicate the deep-seated source of these elements, and the Permian age of the Marija Reka deposit. By considering numerous geochemical data new views on the perspective of the deposit were expressed.
