The Tim-Yastrebovskaya structure of the KMA: geology, tectonics, deep structure, geochemistry and mineral genesis

© V.K. Kushnerenko

The Tim-Yastrebovskaya structure is located in the Oskol Ore Province of the KMA (the Voronezh crystalline massif). Integrated interpretation of gravimetric and magnetometric data together with seismic characteristics, have shown that the Tim-Yastrebovskaya structure rests on a compacted magnetic basement. As the carbonaceous-volcanic-sedimentary formation, which fills the Tim- Yastrebovskaya structure, is highly promising for noble metals, forecasting-exploration criteria for hydrothermal gold-sulphide ore formation (with platinoids) are discussed.
