ferruginous formations, the Archean, greenstone structures, physical-chemical interactions, paleo-geodynamic process, hydrothermal ore deposition, the thickness of lithosphere


The basic idea of existing hypotheses of ferruginous-cherty formations origin is an opinion that the form of iron presence depends on conditions at the depth of sediments accumulation. It has been shown in this paper with Middle-Dnieper mega-block of the Ukrainian Shield greenstone structures used as an example that composition of volcanogenic and ferruginous rocks is specified by succession of physical-chemical interactions on the roof of the layer with partial melting.
