Characteristics of the Late Devonian organic reef in Sanlixia, Zhen'an, Shaanxi Province and its control over the occurrence of Pb-Zn deposits



Characteristics of the Late Devonian organic reef in Sanlixia, Zhen'an, Shaanxi Province and its control over the occurrence of Pb-Zn deposits



Acta Sedimentologica Sinica 12(1): 16-21



The front, core, flat and back of the late Devonian organic reef in Sanlixia could be distinguished. This N-S trending chain of reefs is 180 meters thick and 4000 meters wide. It include the reefs in Sanlixia and the adjacent areas. The synsedimentary rift-faulting resulted in the uplift of submarine topography, thus contributing to the growth of the reef-building organisms, and the relief of submarine topography and the variation of sedimentary facies was enhanced by the rapid development of the organic reef, which resulted in the lagoon graben basin suitable for the deposition of hot ore-bearing brine.
