Mineral deposits form in a variety of complex geologic settings such as continental magmatic arcs, sedimentary basins, and evaporite deposits. The occurrence of a REE-enriched mineral does not necessarily correlate with economic feasibility of mining that mineral deposit; mining companies must also look at ore grade of the deposit to determine. deposits including sulfur deposits and building stone. Some large bodies of plutonic igneous rock, particularly those of mafic (high in magnesium and iron) composition, solidify in layers (Figure ). Each layer contains different minerals and is of a different chemical composition than adjacent layers. Some of the layers may contain rich ore File Size: 1MB.

The Buhrstone ore may contain nodules of chert in some localities. The ore may be a carbonate, siderite, limonite, or hematite. This ore was the chief source used to produce the iron once made in the region.

Garnet is associated with some wollastonite deposits, including one at Willsboro, New York. In the same area of the state, a large-scale hard-rock garnet mine is in operation.

Elsewhere in the United States, although there are hard-rock garnet deposits in Maine and Nevada, the most important commercially are placer deposits in Idaho. Analysis of gold-bearing erratics in Maine resulted in the discovery of gold ore deposits in Quebec.

I have found occasional erratic boulders in North Dakota containing traces of gold. Such erratics were probably transported to North Dakota from the metal mining districts of Manitoba and Saskatchewan, about miles to the north.
