Wyllie. Ultramafic rocks (also referred to as ultrabasic rocks, although the terms are not wholly equivalent) are igneous and meta-igneous rocks with a very low silica content (less than 45%), generally >18% MgO, high FeO, low potassium, and are composed of usually greater than 90% mafic minerals (dark colored, high magnesium and iron content).

The Earth's mantle is composed of ultramafic rocks. Ultramafic and Related Rocks by Wyllie, P J and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at innovationoptimiser.com My Book of Rocks and Minerals: Things to Find, Collect, and Treasure Jul 11, by Devin Dennie.

Ultramafic rocks tend to have elevated primary nickel concentrations with large amount of nickel hosted in olivine and lesser amounts in orthopyroxene. These minerals are the primary source of the nickel contained in rocks created by alteration and weathering.

Processes and Ore Deposits of Ultramafic-Mafic Magmas through Space and Time focuses on the fundamental processes that control the formation of ore deposits from ultramafic-mafic magmas, covering chromite, platinum-group element (PGE), Ni-sulfides and Ti-V-bearing magnetite.

The exploration, exploitation and use of these magmatic ores are. Other articles where Ultramafic rock is discussed: mineral deposit: Carbonatite deposits: silica contents) or to the ultramafic igneous rocks (rocks with silica contents below approximately 50 percent by weight) known as kimberlites and lamproites.

These associations suggest a common derivation, but details of the way that carbonatite magmas might concentrate geochemically scarce metals. Review and classification of ultramafic bodies in the Piedmont of the Carolinas Author(s) Several occurrences of ultramafic and related rocks interpreted to be dismembered ophiolites or ophiolitic mélanges are located near the Inner Piedmont–Kings Mountain belt boundary, on the flanks of the Raleigh belt, and in the Kiokee belt.

Related Book Content. Ultramafic rocks Their low silica and gas contents make them very fluid; i.e., they have a low viscosity, or resistance to flow.

Ultramafic rocks are given names depending on whether they are intrusive or extrusive. Peridotite is the name given to intrusive ultramafic rocks, whereas komatiite is the name given to extrusive ultramafic rocks. Ultramafic and related mafic rocks can conveniently be classified in terms of the tec- tonic environment in which they were eraplaced.

Among those bodies eraplaced in an. Ultramafic rocks (ultramafites or ultramafolites) are igneous and metamorphic rocks that consist predominantly of mafic (ferromagnesian) and related innovationoptimiser.com more important primary mafic minerals are olivine, pyroxene, hornblende, mica, garnet, and opaque ores; the most abundant secondary or metamorphic minerals are serpentine, chlorite, amphibole, epidote, and magnetite.
