Abstract


Crystal morphology and chemical composition of arsenopyrite and pyrite in the Nam Quang and Bo Va deposits of the Song Hien basin (Northeast Vietnam) are studied in detail. Arsenopyrite crystals often form elongated crystals. Their chemical composition are relatively poor in As, but rich in S with S/As ratios often > 1.1, impurity elements such as Ni, Co, Sb, and sometimes containing gold (up to 0.02 wt.%). Pyrite is characterized by the stoichiometric composition, but contains relatively high arsenic and sometimes contain gold. The correlation between the concentration of As and Au in pyrite has been recorded. The morphology and chemical composition of arsenopyrite and pyrite of Bo Va and Nam Quang deposits can be correlated to those in the Au-sulfide deposits in black shale in Kazastan and southestern China.
