The 200 x 500 km Yenisei Ridge metallogenic province, which runs along the southern reach of the north-flowing Yenesei River, is one of the great metallogenic provinces of the world. Pb, In, Au, Pt, Pd, Mn, and V ore occurrences are believed to have been produced, mainly by hydrothermal activity during a protracted period of rifting in Riphean time (1600-650 million years before present). Over 60 stratiform Pb-Zn deposits in carbonate and carbonate-ferruginous flysch occur in the western part of the Ridge, and over 20 major gold deposits in its eastern part.
