Reference information

Comments NE mineralization zone (2 km) along NW contact Dusse-Alin granite pluton. Intensive (1000 nT) magnetic anomaly. Granite includes a lot of granitizied xenolites of diorite with intense disseminated molybdenite. A large Cu-Mo-porphyry deposit (weakly eroded) is expected based on geochemical data.
Study area name Northeast Asia
