There is a great variety of factors controlling the distribution of large and unique ore deposits. The authors collected various empirical data on such mineralogical and geochemical characteristics of ore composition which correlate with the magnitude of deposits. This material allowed the authors to draw some general tentative conclusions. One of the assumptions is that some of the large ore deposits originated under rather reducing conditions, apparently with significant participation of dry mantle gases.
