|Abstract:In this paper, we provides an overview of the types, characteristics, and temporal-spatial distributions of the Pb-Zn deposits in northern margin of the North China block, and seeks to relate these deposits to the tectonic evolution of the North China block, based on the data from both the Chinese and Western literature. The major ore deposits are of SEDEX, skarn, hydrothermal, sediment-reformed, MVT, and complex types, et al. Large-scale mineralizations have occurred notably in the Mesoproterozoic, Late Paleozoic and Mesozoic and reached the peak in Mesoproterozoic and Mesozoic. The Mesoproterozoic was a productive period for SEDEX, sediment-reformed, and MVT Pb-Zn deposits. These deposits were mainly formed in rift of the passive continental margin. The Late Paleozoic era was formed a small amount of hydrothermal Pb-Zn deposits as a result of the extending and delamination after the amalgamation between the North China block and the Mongolia fold belt of the southern margin of the Siberia block. The Mesozoic was a significant metallogenic era of hydrothermal and skarn deposits. These deposits are mainly formed in intracontinental tectonic settings resulted from the superposition of Eurasian and western Pacific Ocean dynamic systems.
