Modern Concepts of Ore Genesis Till the end of the 18th century, geologists had a static concept of the earth, i.e. they believed that it was created exactly as we see it today. Since the beginning of the 19th century, the new way of looking at the earth included the recognition that constant changes take place as geological forces modify the surface and interior of the earth.(PDF) Genetic Classification of ore-forming processes,The absence of a genetic classification of ore-forming processes is the result of a rather slow-paced accumulation of knowledge in ore-forming processes, which, in its turn, could be explained by,ORE DEPOSIT TYPES AND THEIR PRIMARY EXPRESSIONS K.G,,Ore deposits can be classiﬁed on the basis of: - • Composition of the deposit (contained elements). • Form of the deposit (size, shape, orientation and ore mineral distribution). • Associated host rocks or geological structures (ore associations). • Interpreted genesis of the deposit (processes, controls).
