Mississippi...

Reactions:  
Did I mention yet I like these very much? Mississippi Valley Type Deposits? I never have seen one for real but I noticed I read any kind of article I get my hands on lately. There were some nice articles in Mineralium Deposita in the last year about the Kicking Horse and Monarch deposits in B.C. and some deposit in Iran whose name I cannot spell.

I have a nice Zebra Ore specimen from San Vicente/Peru on my shelf. Maybe I make it my "pet-rock". Too bad I don't have the time and money to follow-up the invitation I have to go and visit them. It's kinda far away from Germany so maybe I should try to find some closer to home...

Is anyone out there into mineral deposits and exploration, too?

Hi lost,
I work with epithermal deposits, in Peru, in my plans this visit San Vicente this or next year, or at least I hope so. Now, I'm doing my PhD, and then I look forward to working in exploration, those are my plans. I like so much your picture, I know Iquitos and really is a very beautiful place. Also, I think exist few Geoblogs, but you see there and they are not alone. Have good luck, and really choose to write language is difficult, but I preferred to do this in Spanish, I think there is less GeoBlogs in that language ...Bye

Hey,
wow! That is quite interesting! I wish I could come along. It is very likely that I will be writing my master thesis about low/high sulphidation epithermal au-ag deposits in Peru or USA. However, I still need to settle the details. I have a lot of fotos from various parts of Peru. I spent 6 months in Peru travelling and practising.
