Summary

The Slovenian mineral deposits occur mainly in Permian and Triassic beds. During the diagenesis the U deposit Žirovski vrh originated in the Middle Permian clastic sediments, as well as the Cu deposit Škofje, and in the Upper Permian carbonate sediments the Zn-Pb deposit Puharje. The diversity of the Triassic evolution resulted in formation of various mineral deposits. Pb-Zn deposits in the Scythian, Anisian and Ladinian carbonate rocks were probably formed during diagenesis; the most important deposit is Mežica. In genetic relationship with the Middle Triassic magmatic-tectonic activity are the Zn-Pb deposit Zavrh and the Hg deposit Idrija.

Zusammenfassung

Die Slowenischen Erzlagerstätten treten hauptsächlich in den permischen und triassischen Schichten auf. Während der Diagenese wurden in den mittelpermischen klastischen Sedimenten die U-Lagerstätte Žirovski vrh sowie die Cu-Lagerstätte Škofje und in den oberpermischen Karbonatsedimenten die Zn-Pb Lagerstätte Puharje gebildet. Die vielfältige Evolution in der Trias führte zur Bildung verschiedenartiger Lagerstätten. Die Pb-Zn Lagerstätten in den skythischen, anisischen und ladinischen Karbonatgesteinen entstanden sehr wahrscheinlich während der Diagenese. Im genetischen Zusammenhang mit der mitteltriassischen magmatisch-tektonischen Aktivität wurde die Zn-Pb Lagerstätte Zavrh sowie die Hg Lagerstätte Idrija gebildet.
