Abstract

The Ossa Morena Zone (SW Iberia) hosts an unusual suite of ore deposits, including
magmatic Ni-(Cu) and IOCG mineralization. These deposits are interpreted to have a relationship to
a deep mafic sill intruded in the middle crust. Interaction of mafic magmas with crustal rocks produced
immiscible sulphide-rich melts and water-rich melts. The latter exsolved large amounts of
Fe- and CO2-rich brines that were responsible for widespread albite-actinolite alteration and IOCG
mineralization.
