Abstract

The article describes the results of petrographic, petrochemical, petrofabric, mineralogical and geochemical studies of the major rock groups potentially Cu, Ni, Pt ore- bearing mafic-ultramafic massifs in the Nizhne- Derbinsk complex (Eastern Sayan Mountains). Based on the data interpretation the investigated massifs can be classified as peridotite- pyroxenite-gabbronorite formation of geosynclinal regime in Altai-Sayan folding area. Significant massif deformation occurred during the final post-consolidation formation stage. The petrographic features of gabbro and petrofabric patterns of the rock-forming minerals in the Burlakski and Nizhne-Derbinsk massifs indicated the fact that massifs were involved in the accretion-collisional development stage of the Central Asian folding belt during the final formation stages the Nizhne-Derbinsk complex.
