Abstract

The attempt to obtain an exact information about the origin of sulfur and other metals present in polymetallic deposits at the territory of the Republic of Macedonia have resulted in a detailed sulfur isotope composition study, which have enclosed the following deposits: Toranica, Sasa, Zletovo, Bucim and Alshar deposit. Results obtained for the formerly mentioned deposits have shown that sulfur isotope composition d34S is in the range -7.52 + +2.18 ‰ in Toranica, -1.22 to +6.94 ‰ in Sasa, -3.12 to +3.40 ‰ in Zletovo (without ore associated barites), +0.00 to +2.53 ‰ in Bucim (the narrowest range of all studied deposits) and -6.84 to +0.35 ‰ d34S in Alshar. Therefore, the most probably origin of primary sulfur in studied deposits from Earth's crust or eventually Upper Mantle. Such sources of sulfur and other mineralizing metals confirmed the theories about the endogene origin of mineralization fluids, which have formed studied deposits.
