Abstract

Fluid inclusions in calcites sampled in a Pb-Zn mineralized vein in East Belgium are characterized by a large dispersion of filling temperatures Th (30 degrees C to Tf-2 (-14 degrees C and -21 degrees C). Boiling has not been proved. According to the still unexplained dispersion of the filling temperatures, this study does not permit an estimation of the depth of the ore formation. Nevertheless, fluid inclusions thermometric properties make possible the distinction between calcites associated with a mineralization (from the fertile locality of Poppelsberg) and calcites from sterile area (Belle Roche, Th=150 degrees C, Tf-2 variable around a mode of -8 degrees C).
