Zusammenfassung

Die Streitfrage um die Genese der Mississippi-Valley-Pb-Zn-Lagerstätten wird zugunsten einer syngenetischen und hypogenen Entstehung aus hydrothermal-exhalativen, grossenteils kolloidal sedimentierten Erzlösungen entschieden. Diese drangen entlang uralten, immer wieder aufgebrochenen rhegmagenen Bruchsystemen auf.
