AbstractAs immiscibility in magmas appears most significant in magmatic-hydrothermal processes, studies of magmatic fluid immiscibility should focus on the precipitation of metals. A metallogenic belt along the northern margin of the Western Qinling Belt (China) hosts several porphyry-type Cu-Au deposits. Detailed field investigations reveal that abundant ellipsoidal and sub-spheroidal polymetallic globules exist in a quartz diorite porphyry associated with the Gangcha-Kemo gold deposit, which occurs at the eastern contact of the Dewulu intrusion. To reveal the characteristics and composition of these globules, we present mineralogical and whole-rock major- and trace-element data. The globule formation temperature, which was determined using by chlorite and two-feldspar geothermometers, is estimated at 297-429 degrees C. This temperature is much lower than the host quartz diorite porphyry, which is estimated to be 860-979 degrees C using an amphibole geothermometer. Based on the geochemistry of the globules, their polymetallic droplets, and the host quartz diorite porphyry, we infer immiscible separation from the volatile-rich quartz diorite porphyry and precipitation of the polymetallic droplets within the globules. Rapid migration and condensation of the fluids with limited escape of a fluid phase are inferred, with the globules representing trapped ore-forming elements. We propose that the fluid globules were exsolved from a rising magma carrying abundant ore-forming metals and that the globules with sulfide droplets can be used as an exploration tool for interpreting the genesis of mineralized rocks and related ore deposits.
