The geology and metallogeny of base metal sulfide deposits in Europe, Africa and Australia was the topic of the DMG-GDMB-SAG Joint Meeting held in Aachen (FRG), September 16-19, 1985. Divided into two parts, the presented papers cover the description and interpretation of sediment-hosted as well as volcanic-sediment-hosted and volcanic-hosted copper-zinc-lead (gold-silver) deposits. The present compilation is an overview of current research activities and results on copper-zinc-lead deposits in classical mining districts considering geological, lithological, geochemical and tectonic parameters of ore formation. Even in periods of depressed metal prices, base metal sulfide deposits still remain one of the most attractive mineral exploration targets. This extensive review provides valuable information to researchers and explorationists.
