Deposits, prospects, and permissive tracts for porphyry and sediment-hosted copper resources worldwide, with estimates of undiscovered copper resources.
|Tract name||Deposit type||Geology|
|Solonker||porphyry copper||Paleozoic island- and continental arcs formed by Paleo-Asian ocean subduction beneath the North China craton, and Permo-Triassic rocks formed by collision of the North China and Tarim cratons with Eurasia|
|Kazakh-Tarim||porphyry copper||Devonian through Early Triassic igneous rocks that include the Balkash-Yili continental-margin arc and younger rocks related to the Indosinian orogeny (collision of China with Asia)|
|Oyu Tolgoi||porphyry copper||A varied assemblage of Devonian through Triassic igneous rocks that include the Devonian Kazakh-Mongol continental-margin arc, as well as younger rocks related to the Indosinian orogeny (collision of China with Asia)|
