Аннотация: Research subject. Petrophysical zoning of the Blagodatnoye gold-sulfide deposit in the Yenisei Ridge. Aim. To determine indicative petrophysical characteristics of the products of the main occurrence stages and to develop an evolutionary pe-trophysical model of the investigated deposit. Materials and methods. Physical fields were sПоказать полностьюtudied by the methods of magnetic and electrical exploration and gamma-spectrometry. The petromagnetic heterogeneity and mineralogical-geo-chemical features of formation of polymetamorphic complexes, metasomatites and ores were studied by a neutron acti-vation analysis of the content of rare earth and radioactive elements, petrochemical x-ray fluorescence analysis, as well as by an electron-probe microanalysis of pyrite. Results. The syncollisional fold-overthrust fault (785 Ma) of the preparatory stage provided structural control over the ore-bearing mineral-forming system. The signs of zone dislocation metamorphism include geophysical anomalies: magnetic and natural electrical anomalies due to pyrrhotite and graphite mineralization of cleavage zones on fold limbs, and specific electrical resistance from silicification zones in fold hinges. The metasomatism of the pre-ore (753 Ma) and ore (698 Ma) stages took place under rifting conditions. Pre-ore quartz-mus-covite and chlorite metasomatites with carbon mineralization and supra-background Au concentrations were formed under the action of reducing reaction solutions; they remained unaltered in the non-productive part of the deposit. These formations are characterized by elevated concentrations of radioactive elements and natural electrochemical polarizability. During the ore stage, Au was concentrated by fluids with hydro-carbonate-sulfide composition under the violation of the strike-slip kinematics, which caused significant petrophysical transformations of the productive part of the deposit. Early carbon metasomatites in the sub-ore and root sections of the ore bodies were depleted in terms of U, at the same time as retaining their electrochemical activity. Uranium accumulated in the upper horizons of the productive part, whose rocks lost their polarizability due to scattered carbonate mineralization. Magnetic pyrrhotite crystallized as part of sulfides with a regular increase in its proportion in the root sections of the ore bodies. At the final stage (368 Ma), the mineralized zone was broken into a series of blocks with unequal vertical displacements and levels of erosional truncation by upcasts. This led to the exposure of various-depth sections with contrast petrophysical characteristics. Conclusions. The Blago-datnoye deposit was formed in four stages: preparatory, two ore-generating and final. The petrophysical features of the products of each stage formed the basis for the developed evolutionary petrophysical model, which will be tested on the materials of geophysical studies of the Yenisei Ridge territories. © 2022, AN Zavaritsky Institute of Geology and Geochemistry.
