The Deposit Features and Comprehensive Information Prospecting Model of Mengyejing Potash Deposits in Yunnan Province
Mengyejing potash deposit lies in brown-red and variedness salting-in nagelfluh formation of Cenozoic Mengyejing formation which is located at the back-foreland basin of Lanping-Simao bidirectional arc zone, and it is one of the few large-scale solid potash deposits in China. By integrated study systematically, Mengyejing Potash Deposit’s different scales of mineralization geological anomalies information:geological, geophysical, geochemical, and salt spring chemistry and remote sensing were extracted. A comprehensive information prospecting model of Mengyejing potash deposit is established. Tentatively identified deposits prospecting model of Mengyejing formation, negative gravity anomaly, salt spring chemical anomaly and geochemical anomalies as the core and is of a positive significance for this type of deposit’s prospecting.
