Abstract

The alkaline igneous province of the Kuznetsk Alatau occupies the northern part of the Altai-Kuznetsk segment of the Altai-Sayan Fold System. In many regional descriptions, this segment is named Mariinsky taiga (wild forest), or Martaiga. This province is a manifestation of the Middle Paleozoic alkaline basic magmatism that marks rifting and destruction of the Caledonian structural units of the Altai-Sayan Fold System. Other igneous complexes which are similar in composition and age are known in the Minusinsk Trough, Tuva, northern Mongolia, and Gorny Altai. The uniqueness of the Martaiga area consists in the wide occurrence of nepheline-bearing leucotheralite and feldspathic and feldspar-free urtites, which may be mined as a raw material for production of aluminum.
