Abstract

The Sasa Pb-Zn skarn deposit (10 Mt of ore at 7.5% Pb+Zn) is situated in the Serbo-Macedonian massif (SMM), approximately 100 km east from Skopje, Republic of Macedonia. The SMM is the N-S extending zone, situated between the Vardar ophiolite zone in the west and the Rhodope massif in the east. It comprises an Upper (low-grade) and a Lower (medium to high-grade) unit. The protoliths of both units are reported as volcano-sedimentary series of Precambrian to Paleozoic age, metamorphosed up to green schist and amphibolite facies. During the Cretaceous and Tertiary time, the SMM was penetrated by andesitic to trachytic volcanic rocks. Associated ore deposits could be subdivided into two distinct groups: 1) Porphyry Cu- Mo-Au and subordinated epithermal gold deposits, and 2) Pb-Zn(-Ag) hydrothermal deposits.
