Locations of Deposits - Massachusetts Institute of Technology

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 ...

Fluorite - Wikipedia

Fluorite is a widely occurring mineral that occurs globally with significant deposits in over 9,000 areas. It may occur as a vein deposit, especially with metallic minerals, where it often forms a part of the gangue (the surrounding "host-rock" in which valuable minerals occur) and may be associated with galena, sphalerite, barite, quartz, and calcite.

Gypsum Mineral | Uses and Properties

Gypsum is an evaporite mineral most commonly found in layered sedimentary deposits in association with halite, anhydrite, sulfur, calcite, and dolomite. Gypsum (CaSO 4. 2H 2 O) is very similar to Anhydrite (CaSO 4 ). The chemical difference is that gypsum contains two waters and anhydrite is without water.
