The distribution and substitution mechanism of Ge in the Ge-rich sphalerite from the Tres Marias Zn deposit, Mexico, was studied using a combination of techniques at μmto atomic scales. Trace element mapping by Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled OPEN ACCESS Minerals 2015, 5 118 Mass Spectrometry shows that Ge is enriched in the same bands as Fe, and that Ge-rich sphalerite also contains measurable levels of several other minor elements, including As, Pb and Tl. Micronto nanoscale heterogeneity… CONTINUE READING
