Massive hydrothermal dolomites in the southwestern Cantabrian Zone (Spain) and their relation to the Late Variscan evolution
Abstract Large-scale, massive burial dolomitization affected Upper Carboniferous carbonates of the southwestern Variscan Cantabrian Zone (Spain). Replacive and void-filling dolomites formed and wereExpand

The “calamine” nonsulfide Zn–Pb deposits of Belgium: Petrographical, mineralogical and geochemical characterization
Abstract The Belgian nonsulfide Zn deposits represent the historical basis for the zinc mining and smelting industry in Europe. The zinc ores were called “calamines” and consist of a mixture of ZnExpand

Petrology of the Namib Sand Sea: Long-distance transport and compositional variability in the wind-displaced Orange Delta
Abstract Sourced as the Nile in distant basaltic rift highlands, the Orange River is the predominant ultimate source of sand for the Namib Desert dunes, as proved independently by bulk-petrography,Expand
