An Overview of The Vermont Landfill Assessment Program

Basic Information
Author: Franks, Bernard J.; Goldberg, Steven P.; and Hackbarth, Julie
Description:General geologic, fluid inclusion, and lead isotope studies of uneconomic lead-zinc sulfides in Franklin, northwestern Vermont are used to develop empirical models which characterize their occurrences. A conceptual model is presented which interprets the data through best-fit models of genesis. The investigations indicate that the occurrences apparently share several characteristics of Mississippi Valley-type (MVT) deposits and they provide a test of models of MVT genesis in an unconventional setting. Some commonly accepted models for source, transport, and precipitation are consistent with observations.
