Lead zinc barytes occurs in almost the entire length of the Benue Trough. Lead zinc barytes mineralization in the Trough is believed to be hydrothermal in origin and is associated with brine springs. Fracturing and jointing are intense in the areas of mineralization.

In the Lower Benue Trough of Southeastern Nigeria, lead zinc barium mineralization occurs as widely distributed . epigenetic fracture controlled vein deposits which are restricted to Albian Turonian sediments. Detailed field studies carried out in Ishiagu, Enyigba Ameki Ameri, Wanikande Wanakom, and Gabu Oshina which together constitute the
Abakaliki anticlinorium in the Lower 4 Benue Trough. The occurrences of lead zinc in the study area are associated with saline water intrusion in the sedimentary basin. Mineralization occurs along a narrow belt of approximately 30 to 50 km wide and extends for about 560 to 600 km length of the Benue trough in Adamawa,
27/02/2021· Lead Zinc Barium mineralization has been known in the southern Benue Trough for over a century. However, the first
Lead zinc mineralization in the upper Benue Trough is confined towell defined steeply dipping fractures and faults striking inan N S direction. A close examination of the mineralized structures of abandoned mine workings revealed that the strike length of the veins varies from a few meters with thickness ranging from
The Benue Trough of Nigeria is a sedimentary basin that extends from the Gulf of Guinea in the southwest to the Chad Basin in the northwest for about 800 km in length and 150 km in width. Lead zinc barytes occurs in almost the entire length of the Benue Trough. Lead zinc barytes mineralization in the Trough is believed to be hydrothermal in
The Benue trough is a known metallogenic province with the following mineral districts namely; The Abakaliki Isiagu lower Benue mineral district The Arufu Akwana Azara middle Benue mineral district The Zurak Wase Upper Benue mineral district. The Abakaliki Isiagu Mineral occurrence. The Abakaliki Isiagu district consists of Isiagu deposit,
